	Just two apostilles and a nota bene:
	a) The CD ROM for Greek documentary papyri and inscriptions (PHI
#7) is not a part of the TLG project, although they use the same encoding
scheme for texts, and they share a common "philosophy" in conception of the
data base and data base dissemination.
	b) Regretfully, at least in the present CD ROM #D, it is not exact
to say that the TLG has always chosen the best editions available: in some
cases they used a different criterion.

	N.B: I wrote a little book on Macintosh applications for the
Classical Philology where I discuss at (some) length the TLG and PHI (and
many others) Greek and Latin text databases ant the corresponding retrieval
software. I can send the bibliographic reference to anyone interested.
