Subject: Another Hypertext R3
The American Branch of the Richard III has just completed its hypertext edition
of Shakespeare's Richard III. Of particular interest to some readers will be
the hypertext links to excerpts from Charles Ross's biography of Richard III,
juxtaposing the dramatic events with the actual history of the time.
This is not in any sense a scholarly edition--various volunteers, with varying
levels of expertise, have done the initial keyboarding, HTML markup, and
proofreading. (It is, however, fairly visually appealing.) We realize that at
some point we will have to go back and clean it up, put in line numbers, etc.
We also hope to include additional links -- to a forthcoming online edition of
Holinshed's Chronicles, for example, and possibly to performance history.
