The development of SGF to XStandoff
In this paper we describe the extended standoff approach defined by XStandoff (the successor of the Sekimo Generic Format, SGF), together with the accompanied collection of XSLT stylesheets. SGF has undergone further developments after its first presentation (cf. Stührenberg and Goecke, 2008) which resulted into the new development version called XStandoff containing different changes addressed in this paper. In addition, refinements have been made to the already available transformation scripts that help generating SGF and XStandoff instances and newly developed stylesheets have been added for the deletion of single XStandoff annotations and the conversion into inline representations.
