Quite nice :)

Maybe it is useful to make the highlighted words clickable. You can then show all the meanings of a word in a small popup-box or something like that.

Just out of curiosity: are you making each page (with all the html) individually or are you planning on using a CMS? :ugeek:

Sister Uppalavanna's renderings are sometimes a bit funny:

compagnons --> should read "companions"
Bhikkhu Gavesako
Kiṃkusalagavesī anuttaraṃ santivarapadaṃ pariyesamāno... (MN 26)

Excellent idea! Looking forward to it Dukkhanirodha. If each one of us does his or her bit, the sasana would be richer for it. Sadhu!

Eh, what is DPR exactly?

If you want something to popup when you click or hover on a word be sure to check out jquery:
http://jquery.com
http://jqueryui.com (for nice controls)
http://fancybox.net/ (a nice popup library I've worked with before at work)

Great idea.

There is another experimental tool available. It has a very interesting way of relating the Pali to the English, including a modicum of grammar, in a visual way.

You can find it here: http://theravada.org/translate/

erratum: sorry for the inconveniences it may cause to any of you

for a number of reasons, one being that I am rarely available on the internet, I will have to work on my own, whatever amount of time it takes me.
