Sorry, just found this reply. I was sooooo crazy busy that day and I just wanted someone to spoon feed me a nice pretty copy.
The PG version is horrible. It is full of footnotes, but not in any sort of reasonable format. It has an obsureword+asterisk, then immediately within 2 or 3 words you get asterisk+explanation without any sort of break or anything. The page numbering is atrocious with just <1>, <2>, etc randomly scattered amongst the text.
It is marginally better than just scanning in a book, because it would be PDF and all of the footnotes would be at the bottom, but what a mess!
Meanwhile, I'm happy to be re-reading the Prologue again. I've never read The Canterbury Tales from beginning to end, but always in teacher's preferred order. I plan on going thru it page by page and am looking forward to it!
