We present an XML format in which one can represent several kinds of resources on Ancient Egyptian texts, namely hieroglyphic encoding, transliteration, translation, and lexical annotation. The format is designed to allow automatic alignment of the resources. We report on a prototype of software for processing this format, which has been in successful operation for over one and a half years.
