Wow! Thanks Michael that's great.
Very useful.
One question though,
I'm not able to do searches on lemma, or look up a word in the lexicon browser - is this due to the version, or is it because I didn't compile it right?
Thanks
Dunk

That is because there is no morphological tagging. Lemmas and such will only work with Greek versions when there is a companion tagged text. I will try to get an English translation of Pausanias, but there will not be a tagged text for quite some time (none by me anyway). The tagging process is slow and requires a lot of specialized work. Other than the texts provided by BW, only Homer's Odyssey and Iliad are morphologically tagged. Soon all of Hesiod's works and the Homeric Hymns will also be tagged --- special thanks to John Jackson who is doing this work --- but that is why you can't do lemma searches.
