The CD-ROM your student asked about is probably one distributed by
Andromeda Interactive.  For full details about the text and notes, it
might be best to contact them.  Their Oxford address is 9-15 The
Vineyard, Oxfordshire OX14 3PX. Tel: 01235 529595. Fax: 01235 559122.

U.S.A. address is 1050 Marina Parkway, Suite 107, Alameda, CA 94501.
Tel: (510) 769 1616.  Fax: (510) 769 1919.

Cheers, Mark

David Schalkwyk , the CD-ROM you refer to IS the 1988 Oxford Text.  It
has been discussed on the net before. I would like to add that, with the
exception of some of the new introductory material, which is not WELLS
or TAYLOR, I find this the best CD-ROM of the Complete Works, because it
is so simple, and user friendly. I always have in my computer.
