Reply to David Richman:  Gloog#%*, sqwaukles^&#@, spreeek bluomp and other
embarassed sounds.  Gee, David.  I haven't used the Oxford texts of quartos and
Folio at all.  They sit in the "D" drive of my partitioned hard-disc, but I've
been afraid of the TACT software.  They're e-greek to me.  Ken Steele,
SHAKSPER's paterfamilias, put in a lot of time cleaning those text up while
he was working for Ian Lancashire at Toronto.  He would know a lot about it,
and he was able to discover many flaws in the Wordcruncher base-texts.
But would you give (in exquisite detailed line drawings or small-word
instructions) your method for printing out the texts (reliable or not)?  I
still use xeroxes and rubber cement to get the texts to classes and actors.
