As Peter has indicated, Perseus is alive and well in the northern sky of
the cybersphere.  There are now several mirrors of the original Perseus
site -- a UK site, German site, and I think there is now a Chicago one as
well.  If you should encounter a time when the home site is down for
maintenance (and you will if you use it enough), it will redirect you to
one of the mirrors.  

German (contents page):  

UK:  I don't seem to be able to bring it up right now -- very strange
since they usually have a redirect page when the site isn't available.

Chicago:  I never really marked this site, but I believe I encountered it

You can view Greek texts in a number of different fonts (unicode and
legacy) or in beta code.  Latin is . . . well, Latin.
