This would be a massive data entry project, requiring people to type pages as well as people to check the work. Once that was done we could go in and add extra comments, fix up obsolete or incorrect philology, etc.

All the flaws corected continually and the commentaries ever increasing and being corrected. Each section version controlled with CVS and updated with `make' utility. That's how I managed Euclid's Elements.
I have no experience with LaTeX, I am just typing a single file, to be edited later with all the chaptering, links and footnotes that Palmreader offers. Ofcourse I will always retain a version of the pure text separate from the edited-for-Palm text. But that's far from CVS version control .
I must have missed that one? I only know of the scanned version. Could you point me to that edited pdf?
