Mike,

http://gatekeeper.dec.com/pub/data/shakespeare

is one place to download text versions of Shakespeare's plays.  There is
also a glossary in plain text.  These text editions are based on "The
Complete Moby(tm) Shakespeare," which was the origin of MIT's HTML
Shakespeare site.

Dear Mike--

You asked
>Does anyone know where I can find plain-text (that is, non-HTML)
>versions of the plays on the Web to download? Barring that, does anyone
>out there know a way to convert HTML documents to usable format (sans
>HTML code) for use in WordPerfect or Word?

It is pretty easy to save HTML as plain text that any word processor can
easily digest. Here's how it works on the Mac with Navigator, and on
Windows using Internet Explorer.

When any page is open in your browser, simply choose Save As from the
File Menu (both Mac and Windows). A window will open asking you where
you want to save the file, and giving you a chance to name it. In that
window is a pop-up menu: on the Mac it says "Format" and it lets you
choose between Text and Source; on Windows, it says "Save as type" and
lets you choose between HTML file and text file. Save the page as text.

That's it; the HTML tags will not be in the file you saved, but simply
plain text, formatted using spaces and tabs that try to approximate the
layout of the page.

Michael

Open the html file in Word 97 and save as a Word document with the
extension

.doc

and the slot reading

All Files
