Every single text that appears on aoidoi.org goes through preparation twice. The second round of course is all on the computer, and is probably the most tedious.

yet another collection of Latin texts, including some really quite obscure ones.

Textkit forums and Google

For the curious...

--> Copy & paste into an editor that supports unicode
--> change to a truetype unicode font ...
