In re Bob Kraft's response to the digitization of MSS coupled
with machine-readable texts of the same material. It seems to
me that the solution is to link the pages of the MS to the
machine-readable texts in a data base format, so that one search
option would bring up the relevant MS page by searching for a
word on it transcribed in the machine-readable text.

We are contemplating precisely such a system in the proposed
Digital Archive and Thesaurus of Spanish Texts and would love
to hear from anyone attempting to deal with similar problems.
