Guiguts has been used.

At some point, the page markers were lost, because the text was rewrapped in another editor than Guiguts. A kind person at DP helped me get them back, but they may be slightly displaced at some points.

(The above comments are identical to the Readme.txt file included in the .zip file).
Uploaded 2nd time for PPV 27 June 2010.

This file needs a ppver who can sort out some very hybrid html markup. It is beyond me, I can supply all files and notes, and an almost finished zip.

Hoping someone will take pity on this one.

2011-07-17 Going back to a previous stage, since the html apparently is messed up and nobody wants to fix it. Will try to make a version ready for RST/HTML.
2011-07-31 Sent files ready for RST/HTML to Mark.
2011-09-03 Uploaded partially postprocessed files (ready for RST/HTML). If you want to help with the HTML, please contact Mark first.

Please contact Mark if you want to help with the rst/html. Thank you.
Returning after making further checking and correction. Should be ready for RST/HTML.

This is the first part of the second volume. The Deva-Nagiri is not perfect due to the poor scans and print quality. This will be improved before posting to PG, so please ignore this for the present. The many Sanskrit words are transcribed as printed and should cause no problem with the general understanding of this important Indian classic.

There are seven parts of this project of which I have finished six I am still working on the Prologue, which has nearly 800 Sanskrit quotations.
However, before I post all of them for PPV I would like to get some feedback, I do not have a PP mentor at present (rfrank was my mentor until he decided to retire from DP). All the books have been smooth read and if there are no problems with this one I would like for them to go to PG as a group.
If there are any problems I would like to fix them myself and would like the book returned to me while I am doing that. Thank you.

The prior PPer's ppgen .src files have been converted to .txt and .html files (with accompanying .bin files) for further review with the assistance of another PPer.

The .zip file contains the 5 files discussed above, for completeness.

Previously smooth-read in earlier phases. This book contains a few snippets of Sanskrit on which work is continuing - they are offered as images in the HTML for this smooth read.
Partial reads welcome.
