Ward, I've donte the search, with a considerable number of "hits" as a
result. But the software I'm using (Silver Mountain) is not the most user
friendly I've ever encounterd, and it seems that when I save the text of
the hits to a format (Word Perfect) that I can then transliterate and send
via my server to the list, that downloaded text is always absent the text
references. And to download the references of the "hits", I have to save
each subsection (that is, hits attributed to a particular author) one by
one in a rather convoluted process. It's all very frustrating. (John
Baima, if you're out there -- what am I doing wrong?)
Time is tight for me right now until after the week end. So please be
patient with me, and I'll get these off to you and the list at the
beginning of next week. There are a number of instances in Plutarch, by
the way, which look promising for the previous discussion on usage.
