Revised XML document collections

Revised versions of my XML-tagged Religion and Shakespeare sets are
now available at

As usual, I note that the documents in these collections do not
exercise most of the features of XML, but they are real documents of
fairly considerable size that are useful in trying out certain kinds
of XML tools.  They are also fun to read.

I have taken advantage of this revision to incorporate some
corrections that have been accumulating since these collections were
first made publicly available in 1994.  I would like to thank everyone
who has contributed to this effort, especially the anonymous workers
who created the ASCII texts upon which the marked-up versions of the
religious works were based; Moby Lexical Tools, for putting the ASCII
versions of Shakepeare's plays into the public domain; Eve Maler, for
her help in getting my old SGML DTDs into XML; Simon St. Laurent, for
finding a patch of bad markup in Macbeth; and Yuichi Tanaka, for a
number of small corrections to the Old Testament and in particular for
drawing my attention to the missing subdivisions in Psalm 119, which
have been restored and are now reflected in new div and divtitle
elements in the tstmt DTD.

These files may be freely distributed as long as the integrity of the
sets is maintained.
