The World of Dante


"The World of Dante offers a hypermedia environment for the study of the Inferno. This project is designed to appeal to the different purposes of a wide range of readers, not simply those with scholarly interests. This version of the Inferno is generated by software from a densely encoded electronic text. Unlike other versions of the poem presently online, this copy of the Inferno has been tagged using SGML (Standard Generalized Markup Language). Search results are retrieved and presented using DynaWeb, a product of the Inso Corporation. The text and searching enabled by DynaWeb and the underlying SGML demonstrates the potential of electronic resources in the humanities. The materials here are incomplete. This site is still under construction; its purpose is to show and test an interface design for The World of Dante."
