Has there been any attempt to incorporate the Cambridge LXX into BW? It is vastly superior to BHS (in terms of TC work).

The time and expense to OCR something like the Cambridge LXX would be ginormous!

That being said, perhaps someone with the skill and want-too could produce a CHM file that links the appropriate passage of the Pentateuch to the images available online:

Brooke, McLean, & Thackeray: The Old Testament in Greek (Cambridge LXX: Genesis - Ruth) (http://rosetta.reltech.org/cgi-bin/Ebind2html/TC/CambLXX)The same could be done for von Gall's Samaritan Pentateuch (http://rosetta.reltech.org/cgi-bin/Ebind2html/TC/vonGall), Codex Ambrosiano (http://purl.org/BibleMSS/cgi-bin/Ebind2html/BibleMSS/7a1) and Field's Hexapla (vols 1 (http://rosetta.reltech.org/cgi-bin/Ebind2html/TC/FieldOrigenv1) & 2 (http://rosetta.reltech.org/cgi-bin/Ebind2html/TC/FieldOrigenv2)).

How about if we just get the Lucianic text of 1-2 Samuel, 1-2 Kings, 1-2 Chronicles typed in? That's all doable, and it's all in print in Natalio Fernandez Marcos, El Texto Antioqueno de la Biblia Griega (3 vols.), Madrid 1989-1996. Recently the same guy published a concordance of the text: Indice Griego-Hebreo en los libros Historicos, Madrid 2005. The Lucianic family is the most important set of variants, and if you've got the verse in front of you, you don't need the apparatus of Cambridge.

:p

...or shell out the money for an OCR program that can accurately read polytonic Greek.

You don't want my product - without breathings and not tagged.

No breathings but it has accents? That's easier to fix than typing the whole thing from scratch. Tagging can also be done by checking words against the BGM/T databases.

All I want is the Lucianic text of 1-2 Samuel and 1 Chron 10-21 without accents and breathings and untagged. If I do that and give it to somebody else to do the rest??!!
