I would love it if someone would undertake to convert Edersheim's The Life And Times Of Jesus The Messiah into a .CHM module, especially if concurrently the Mishna, Talmud, et cetera, could be produced in brother .CHM modules so that Edersheim's references to Rabbinic literature, which are extensive, could be cross-referenced.

This would be a monumental work, but one very rich in treasure as Edersheim merges the Bible, especially the NT, to Rabbinic literature so extensively, more so than perhaps anyone else, including Lightfoot, who did a masterful job a couple centuries before Edersheim.

The real key is whether they exist anywhere as HTML documents. If so that makes the conversion monumentally easier. Do you know of any sources online?

e-Sword contains it as a module, and CCEL has it in several formats, including plain text, PDF, Word...
