In this paper we present the steps taken to TEI encode both parts of Don Quixote and the approach and solutions developed to fit the requirements of our archive regarding visual elements and dynamic links utilizing structural divisions and taxonomic categories to be able to navigate from images to texts and from texts to images. We describe the four level division utilized to create the TEI One Document Does is All (ODD), including the Part and Chapter headers linked to all the images in the database for a particular chapter. In addition, we illustrate the Text/Image that corresponds with the terms found in the Browse image archive by content finding aid, which makes possible to filter results by individual chapters. This multilevel approach facilitates the search of information as well as the maintenance and update of the TEI tags.

Since 2003, the Cervantes Project has been developing a fully documented hypertextual archive to make accessible the textual iconography of the Quixote (Madrid 1605, 1615) [http://quixote.tamu.edu]. With support from a Preservation and Access grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (2006-2009) we have digitized, indexed, and annotated over 30,000 illustrations and have developed search tools and finding aids to enable the identification of discreet images or sets of items based on a newly created taxonomy of episodes and adventures of the text, which includes over 500 categories, as well as a 400 control vocabulary of key words. The contents of the image database and metadata are dynamically updated and the results are available immediately online through the collection index and a multilayered search engine. In 2009 we applied tags related to both the taxonomy categories and the key words to two create online editions of the Quixote, one in Spanish and one in English, linking the illustrations to the texts and thus producing a virtual visual variorum edition suitable for both research and teaching purposes.
