David Bantz's queries on encoding of the OUP Shakespeare:

This electronic edition is specifically the '86 modern-spelling
edition -- i.e. a single edition -- hence why variants etc.
are not present.

The coding scheme used in fully documented in the accompanying
manual. The texts are not indexed.

to add to Bob Kraft's posting of last Wednesday, it would hard to
put the full contents of 1 CD ROM onto either a pack of floppies or
onto a hard disk. The advantage of the CD ROM is that it lets
you store up to 500 MB on one disk, no swapping or anything.
Even with HD floppies, that is over 350 floppies!!
