>>Have a look at this interesting new project called Biblon 2000:

It's written by David Harley in Australia. At the moment there is not a
lot of data there, but what is available looks promising. One can read
passages from the Greek NT in the Greek font of one's choice and one can
manipulate the main text by clicking on elements in the apparatus! I'm
not sure whether to link to this yet on my NT Gateway because of the
sparseness of the material actually there but it is already such an
exciting looking project that I am inclined to do so.

What do others think of this new resource?<<

It is certainly an improvement over other electronic texts I have seen.
The inclusion of a critical apparatus is the most noticeable difference.

Unfortunately, the site appears to be under construction, as most
hyperlinks are not yet active, and the interface is more than a tad on the
slow side. Based on that, I am hesitant to recommend including a
link -yet-. KALOS, by contrast, was a completely functional database when
you included a link to it, even though there were problems reliably
downloading the large amount of data it contained.

Might I suggest that you reserve a corner of your NT Gateway homepage (or
a link to a separate page) for "Projects in Development" where you can
list short descriptions and URLs for projects like this.
