The system here allows you to convert your book pages' images into editable text, presented in a particular text format called XML (eXtended Markup Language) of a particular type called Text-Encoding Initiative or TEI XML. This particular format was developed specifically for being able to mark-up or annotate the text you want to work on, i.e. to add all manner of further information to the actual text, e.g. to build a critical edition of it, which is most likely exactly what you want to do with your author's work.
