Ken: Count me in for entering and encoding a quarto between now and
Christmas.  I just got a copy of the Allen-Muir and could work from
that.  The TEI people would probably help and those like Lavagnino at
Brandeis might have helpful encoding instructions (I have some that have
evolved for Milton, but they don't necessarily work well with drama).  I
might be able to railroad some graduate students onto email and into
transcribing and encoding.  How about *Hamlet* Q1, for starters?

Re Steve's initial query:
 
One person who has been producing electronic texts of some Folio plays
is my former colleague, Neil Freeman, who is now in the Drama Dept. at
the University of British Columbia. Freeman's texts are in Microsoft
Word, for the Mac, and are especially designed for use by actors. I haven't
collated one of his texts with F, so can't comment yet on their accuracy,
but Ellen O'Brien used his *Measure* as a production text at Guilford
College last spring, and was very positive about it, and I am planning
to use it in workshops with my students this winter. (For a fee, Freeman
provides you with a diskette and the right to reproduce it for classes or
productions.) Sorry, I don't have a current e-mail address for him, but
the Canadian posties, when not out walking the picket lines, would surely
help you reach him in the good old-fashioned way at:
 
		Drama Department
		University of British Columbia
		Vancouver, B.C.  V6T 1W5
