Semantic enhancement of texts aids their use by researchers. However, mark-up of large bodies of text is slow and requires precious expert resources. The task could be automated if there were marked-up texts to train and test mark-up tools. This paper looks at the re-purposing of texts originally marked-up to support taxonomists to provide computer scientists with training and test data for their mark-up tools. The re-purposing highlighted some key differences in the requirements of taxonomists and computer scientists and their approaches to mark-up.
