Unfortunately it's not every word written by Demosthenes, but it does include quite a few!

Check it out (http://bibleworks.oldinthenew.org/2006/07/user-database-demosthenes-speeches-in.html).

Well it's like that song, "School's out for summer....." Greek is my school work :)

I think I am close to running out of these projects however :) To my knowledge, these are the only authors whose work is in the public domain via Perseus

Aeschines (very brief, only 3 speeches)
Appian (I still have to figure out section and verse numbering)
Aristotle (a mess with regard to finding useful divisions)
Epictetus (in progress)
Old Oligarch (short)
Pausanius (should be done before September)
Plutarch (this one is on pause for right now)
Polybius (in progress)
Strabo
Theocritus (good for people who like Apollonius. All two of them)
Theophrastus
and then the dramatists (Aeschylus, Aristophanes, Sophocles, and Euripides) which are going to be very demanding of my time and so I have yet to begin them.

Sounds like a lot, but trust me, the amount of Greek available in BW right now is a rather enormous chunk. This stuff is just cleaning up the debris.
