Thank you! :) I wrote a Perl script to convert the "source" (included at the bottom of each interlinear page for the curious) into HTML code. It currently requires a computerized dictionary because it does all the glossing, part-of-speech lookup, etc itself. Right now the script expects the dictionary to be in the format I store mine in, but if others are interested in using my script, I can make the dictionary look-up functions plugin-able. (I'd even write plugins for anyone with a consistent dictionary format, if they can't program themselves.) I could probably also tweak it to output empty table cells for people who don't have a computerized lexicon but still like the layout itself. So, I'd be happy to tweak and then make available my script, if there's interest. :) -- AA
