Homer: (Pope - Trans.): The Iliad of Homer, v1.1, 25 April 2008.

This is my first upload, so please forgive me if it seems way too unorthodox. What I did here was I took pg's text of Pope translation of the Iliad, placed all 300 footnotes in the line right after the tag in italics, and after extensive hex editing before and after placing the notes, ran it through pielrf. I feel that sometimes there is no such thing as an unimportant footnotes, and it's much easier on the user and on the device to glance at a footnote, read it or ignore it, than to use a hyperlink to first access its importance. I hope you all enjoy it.

If you like the idea and would like some pointers on how I did it, or know a easier way to insert notes in the text, please PM me.

Converted _'s to italics/not italics.
