This volume contains the papers that were accepted for presentation at the - ternationalConferenceonT X,XML, andDigitalTypography,jointlyheld with E the 25th Annual Meeting of the T X Users Group in Xanthi, Greece in the sum- E mer of2004.Theterm“DigitalTypography”refersto thepreparationofprinted matter using only electronic computers and electronic printing devices, such as laser-jetprinters.Thedocumentpreparationprocessinvolvesmainlytheuseofa digital typesetting system as well as data representation technologies. TXand E its o?spring are beyond doubt the most successful current digital typesetters, while XML is the standard for text-based data representation for both business and scienti?c activities. Allpapersappearinginthisvolumewerefullyrefereedbythemembersofthe program committee. The papers were carefully selected to re?ect the research work that is being done in the ?eld of digital typography using T X and/or its E o?spring. The problems for which comprehensivesolutions have been proposed include proper multilingual document preparation and XML document processing and generation. The proposed solutions deal not simply with typesetting issues, but also related issues in document preparation, such as the manipulation of c- plex bibliographic databases, and automatic conversion of text expressed in one grammaticalsystem to a more recent one (as for the Greek language,converting between monotonic Greek and polytonic Greek). The conference is being graciously hosted by the Democritus University of Thrace in Xanthi and by the Greek T X Friends. We wish to thank Basil K.
