Subject:     New Site: Mobile Open Source Shakespeare

Hello, all --

I would like to invite you to view Mobile Open Source Shakespeare, 
particularly if you have a mobile device that can browse the web: 

The design is very spare, because the HTML code for the pages is 
optimized for the relatively slow speed of a wireless connection. It 
will also work quite well in a low-bandwidth scenario, such as in remote 
areas without broadband connections to the Internet.

You can read all of Shakespeare's plays, sonnets, and poems on the site. 
Also, you can search by keyword and work. The site is a subset of Open 
Source Shakespeare (http://www.opensourceshakespeare.org), and so it 
does not include all of the features of the main site. The concordance 
might be ported over at some point, but I'm not quite sure how to render 
it on tiny screens. If anyone has suggestions, please send them along.

And please send suggestions about anything else, too. I would 
particularly love to hear how Mobile OSS looks on your device. Special 
thanks to Jay Feldman, who helped me troubleshoot the site with his 
iPhone. Enjoy!
