Hypertext formatting a Public Domain document

I've taken a stab at starting the project I described in my last post: creating a hyperlinked version of a public domain text. I've added the text of John Locke's Two Treatises of Government to the wikibooks project where it can have links to wikipedia articles and other gloss material added to it.

You can check it out here. Any help would be much appreciated.

You really don't want me to grade these papers, do you.

I do like the project, though. Except that I hate the idea of contributing to something that might "break the spine." Except that I know it would be fun to do. Effing technology, always seducing you to destroy you, etc.

Certainly more fun than teaching the body paragraph, anyway ...
