One idea: is it possible to link the pāḷi with a mouse-over and click option to search an entire document? The DPR provides this, although without translation parallels, where you can click on most pāḷi words and compounds for a very basic interactive with a breakdown and dictionary features.

What you suggest is too complex for me.
This is exactly what hope to see on various suttas website for a long time but didn't see . Incorporating a DPR side by side with the English translation just like Dukkhanirodha had it laid out will be very helpful for readers because when they are confused about a certain translation, they can click on the Pali words with definition pop-ups ( or some where ) and see the meaning of the word more thoroughly. It can contribute to a more thorough understanding of the discourse . That way they don't have to look it up .
I agree with Dukkhanirodha that it can be very complex. It takes a long time just to post the English version alone, especially if you are translating before posting. Maybe another person can help to incorporate the DPR into the pali in the left ( or whatever way possible).
I think the introduction is great, Dukkhanirodha.

I think it will be a very useful feature for the readers to have the DPR incorporated on the Pali side. I will be working on one also, but there is no Pali or DPR though. I wonder if anyone who is familiar would want to collaborate on the project and add the DPR. Aside from listing the suttas by number according to the original order, I plan to list it as according to topics as well. That way when people wanted to learn what the Buddha taught about a certain subject, it is all laid out in one place. It is easier to see the complete picture . Right now let's say you are trying to learn about kamma, the suttas on kamma will be scattered all over the various Nikayas like pieces of puzzles that are scattered out. You still have to locate and put it together to see the full picture. A mistake I often see people make is that he/she will read one or two sutta on the subject ( kamma, sila, etc..) and come to a conclusion when else where there are other suttas revealing other aspects about it.
Dukkhanirodha, it is great that you are making a French version available. Or is it in English too but I don't see it.
