One of the great things about the oXygen XML Editor that I use is that it allows frameworks as add-ons (from version 14+, though actually for the TEI one you need 15.2+) for various document types. These can consist of template documents, XSLT files for transformations, CSS, and all manner of customisations to oXygen.
I’ve been asked a number of times to explain to someone how they can keep the TEI framework in their oXygen installation up to date automatically with releases of the TEI P5 Guidelines (and thus the underlying schema) as well as releases to the TEI-XSL Stylesheets.
The process for this isn’t entirely intuitive, but is not too difficult if you follow the steps below.
Add the oXygen-TEI Add-on
The updateSite.oxygen File
Add the URL http://www.tei-c.org/release/oxygen/updateSite.oxygen this is a file which is updated every time there is a TEI Guidelines or Stylesheets release. Click ‘Ok’.
Check for Updates
Install the Update
Once oXygen has downloaded the package you must check to agree to all the license terms. (All TEI Consortium materials are dual-licensed as BSD 2-Clause and/or Creative Commons Attribution.) Accept, and then click ‘Continue’.

To Complete the Update: Restart oXygen
Next time there is a TEI Guidelines or TEI XSL Stylesheets release you will get prompted to install the updates. That is all there is to it!
