Subject: E-Plato

I would like to ask help in locating an E-text of a translation of the
earlier Platonic dialogues. I am composing a correspondence course and I
would like to include large parts of the early dialogues which are hard to
find in inexpensive editions for students. For the same reason I would
prefer to have the E-texts in Jowett's translation or some other version
that is out of copyright.
I have already tried the sources found in the Humanist Listserv (Intelex;
Oxford Text Archive) without success.

I am posting it for a friend in Russia. She has a limited e-mail
connection, so please direct your responses to me. I will summarize
them for her and, if appropriate, for the list. This is just a query,
not at all a commercial. This is her unedited message:

"My firm produces electronic dictionaries - two of them, Engish-Russian
and Russian-English general dictionaries, are in the process of development
now, and one terminoligical dictionary (business and commerce, 6.700
entries) is already in sale. We intend to develope several series of
terminological dictionaries of small volume - from 1000 to 5000 entries
each. I'd like to know, are there any electronic terminological dictionaries
into US software market? I saw in price-lists only thesauruses,
synonim dictionaries and two (and more)-language general lexics dictionaries.
May be Americans use modem-link with big terminological databases instead of
standalone programes? I'll be very grateful to you for any information
on US electronic terminological dictionaries and their sales prices."
