Not if we could convince a few other people to type up particular sections.

alauda wrote:Second, to Annis, yes, I'm a total Emacs geek. I keep my hand in on vi and find it very useful, but for lots of typing, Emacs is the way to go for me.
Unfortunately, I've NEVER gotten Emacs to display polytonic fonts. Annoying, because almost all my other programs have no problem. Emacs font configuration has always been alien to me.
-*- coding: utf-8 -*-
(modify-coding-system-alist 'file "\\.html\\'" 'utf-8)
Third, I found several converters, and I'm checking out that vi one too, but just as a fun project, I decided to write my own using Perl and a custom xml notation.

perispomenon wrote:I just OCR-ed Pharr's grammar paragraphs. It requires proofreading and the insertion of Greek examples (my OCR software does not recognize polytonic Greek), so still a bit of work.
This, combined with the paradigms I already typed: is it enough to give the momentum needed for this project?

Annis, I'm happy to enter and/or proofread text...just waiting for someone to tell me what to do. I don't want to lose the momentum on this project!

Does this mean you want your own PDF of the Old English Magic Sheet? If so, you may find one at http://www.engl.virginia.edu/OE/courses ... /magic.pdf
