Dante's Divine Comedy marks the 1,000th Project Gutenberg Etext.
We will be presenting this work in a wide variety of formats, in
both English and Italian, and in translation by Longfellow, Cary
and possibly more, to include HTML and/or the Italian accents.

WE WOULD ***LOVE*** YOUR ASSISTANCE IN PROOFREADING THESE FILES!

Right now we mostly need help with the Italian and Longfellow, I
think we may have enough proofers for a first run at the Cary.

We hope to have a decent versions of each one by August 31, 1997

Because these are preliminary versions, they are named xxxxx09.*

Also because they are so preliminary, I have not placed the names
of the person working on the files in them, as I take my complete
repsponsibility for all errors that need to be corrected. Credit
will be completely given when we have the final version ready.
