08.12.2013:
A general problem with the fonts of the web interface, which caused a quite imprecise layout of the texts has been fixed. The layout of the texts is now faithful to the layout of tablets and editions (still with the temporary exception of Knossos and Pylos - but the right layout is coming soon!).

the text of the Knossos tablets is now completely revised and should be free from mistakes. The layout, though, has still to be changed.
