Father Busa has stories of truckloads of punched cards being transported from one center to another in Italy. All computing was carried out as batch processing, where the user could not see the results at all until printout appeared when the job had run. Character-set representation was soon recognized as a substantial problem and one that has only just begun to be solved now with the advent of Unicode, although not for every kind of humanities material. Various methods were devised to represent upper- and lower-case letters on punched cards, most often by inserting an asterisk or similar character before a true upper-case letter.

Various methods of defining document structures were proposed, but the most sophisticated one developed at this time was that used by the COCOA concordance program (Russell 1967). Modeled on a format developed by Paul Bratley for an Archive of Older Scottish texts (Hamilton-Smith 1971), COCOA enables the user to define a specification for the document structure which matches the particular set of documents.
