Chaucer, Geoffrey: The Canterbury Tales. v1. 12 July 07

Well, I'm not a Middle English expert -; I don't even know who translated this into "current" version, but it sure wasn't Spike Jones.

I had a lot of trouble with this: TITLES would not give me page breaks. There are a number of fragments, of course, since Chaucer did not finish his masterpiece, so please don't think I inadvertently cut something. I also, to err on the safe side, created a page break for every single title, because of the problem with the TITLES attribute. I did go over every CHAPTER and they now begin on a new page.

I have those hanging TOC lines, but some chapters are really long and there's a bug (or a non-implimentation?) in TOC so that I can't change to a different attribute and...well, some of you may know the story, so I won't rehash it here.

I don't know how well this version reads, but I'm going to load it onto my Reader and give it a try.

I had trouble finding a version that looked complete and was in one piece, as was this version.

I IMPLORE YOU: IF YOU SEE SOMETHING WRONG, LET ME KNOW ABOUT IT SO I CAN TRY TO FIX IT. I KEEP ALL BACKUPS OF MY WORKING FILES.

I hope you enjoy this.

P.S.: This version (and my formatting) I know isn't the cleanest looking version. Any suggestions will be helpful. It almost looks like a mess, due to the combination of poetic and prose elements. PLEASE LET ME KNOW, and I'll try to make it look better.
