Actually, they cut-n-paste really well with only minor reformatting. For email I set the wrap margin on my interlinear text file to about 50 characters and the use ShoeBox's "Reshape" command after generating the interlinear. This works really well. For the web, I use FrontPage and cut-n-paste into the WYSIWYG editor. I do some minor reformatting on the results to make it pretty. David David E.
