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.
