the Oxford Text Archive (ota.ahds.ac.uk) just gave me Mansfield Park,
in TEI. It asked me to agree to respect copyright etc, which I didnt
find unreasonable. I can obviously print or display that file

auto-HTML soon). I dont think it gave me special treatment.

just an example.

oh yes? they don't have to learn English to read Shakespeare then? one
does not need any educational background at all to understand Cavafy?
