Dear Sir/Madam,

The Werkgroep Informatica of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam is pleased to
announce the launch of its pilot web project, The Interactive Hebrew Text
Project, at

			 http://www.th.vu.nl/~wiweb/index.htm

(You can also find it under the Theology Webpage (http://www.th.vu.nl/)
under
Onderzoek, Werkgroep Informatica.)

This is a pilot project and so only 5 chapters of the Old Testament are
presented (the book of Jonah and Duet. 4), and only comments in Dutch are
available for Deuteronony 4.

Due to the complexities of displaying interactive Hebrew on the web, the
site
will only work under Windows 95 (98 or above is better) with the browser
Internet Explorer 4 (5 or above is better). It will not work under Netscape
or
other operating systems. The site provides a test to see how your system
matches our minimum requirements at
http://www.th.vu.nl/~wiweb/html/test.htm.

******  The pilot project has been possible due to the generous funding of
the
Vrije Universiteit. If you think the overall idea and purpose of the site is
worth supporting, please fill in the response form
(http://www.th.vu.nl/~wiweb/html/feedback.htm) once you have viewed the
site,
as your responses will be important in the event of future funding proposals
to expand the site to include many more chapters of the Hebrew bible and
greater cross-platform, cross-browser support. IF YOU HOLD AN ACADEMIC
POSITION OR A POSITION WITHIN THE COMPUTING INDUSTRY WE WOULD GREATLY
APPRECIATE A FORMAL LETTER OF SUPPORT FOR THE FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF THIS
SITE
*******

You can also directly email the webmaster at wiweb at th.vu.nl

We hope the site will be of particular interest to Hebraists, translators,
and students of Hebrew and Hebrew discourse.
