>the texts of the complete works and copy and paste like I've done here:

If anyone is still using those horrible "Moby" texts, you'll be pleased
to know you can stop now. There are two decent modern-spelling, edited
editions available for free in electronic form

Bartelby.com has the 1914 Oxford text (Ed. W. J. Craig) up for free.
(It's especially well-HTMLed, including line-number tags for
hyperlinking to.)

There's also the 1911 Globe edition on Perseus. Based on the 1895 (?)
text edited by William George Clark and William Aldis Wright.
Hyperlinked to a couple of Shakespeare glossaries.

(There are also a couple of plays from the Furness editions here, plus a
folio transcript.)

These aren't as good as the more modern editions, but they're pretty
respectable. Bartelby's web interface is much easier to use and much
faster.

These are the only modern, edited editions that I'm aware of for free,
online. Any I've missed?

Thanks,
