Is anyone out there working on a Bibleworks edition of Smyth's grammar?

www.textkit.com (http://www.textkit.com) has a PDF version. Would it be hard to convert the PDF into a compiled html file?

That would be pretty difficult because it is not a PDF of text, but of images (if I remember correctly). The more promising route may be to do some converting of the data Perseus uses, which in its most user-friendly format can be found here (http://artfl.uchicago.edu/cgi-bin/philologic/navigate.pl?monographs.17), but it would still require a good amount of work to make it into a HTML file. BW knows about the request for Smyth, it's just a matter of having the man-power to turn it into reality.

If you're still interested in doing some work to make a Smyth commentary, email me via the Forums. I have a lot of the work in place, but I need some help to put the finishing touches on it. You'll be shocked at how close it is to being finished. :)

Oh and if anyone else can help do some text editing/double checking hyperlinks or that kind of work, you can also email me. Any help is appreciated.
