The œ character (oe ligature) is not in Latin-1, so we mark it with brackets like in man[oe]uvre, or [OE]dipus for the capital Œ. Note that the æ character (ae ligature, as in encyclopædia) is in Latin-1, so that character should be inserted directly.
Distributed Proofreaders was founded in 2000 by Charles Franks to support the digitization of Public Domain books. Originally conceived to assist Project Gutenberg (PG), Distributed Proofreaders (DP) is now the main source of PG e-books. In 2002, Distributed Proofreaders became an official PG site. In May 2006, Distributed Proofreaders became a separate legal entity and continues to maintain a strong relationship with PG.
