Subject: TLG Workplace 2.0

Silver Mountain Software is pleased to announce TLG Workplace 2.0. The
TLG Workplace 2.0 is a Microsoft Windows 3.1 program for viewing and
searching the TLG D CD-ROM.

Features of TLG Workplace 2.0 include:

View Greek texts with full diacritical marks. Several of the most
common text symbols and punctuation marks are also displayed (Stigma,
Alternate Stigma, Koppa, Alternate Koppa, Sampi, Dagger (Crux),
Question Mark, Asterisk, Slash, Exclamation Mark, Long Vertical Bar,
Equals Sign, Plus Sign, Ampersand, Colon, Oversize Period, Double
Dagger, Paragraph Sign, Short Vertical Bar, Broken Vertical Bar Double
Vertical Bar, Apostrophe).

On screen bold and italics.

Movable Toolbar (Top, Right, Left, or off) for opening files, copying
text to the clipboard, print or view the Canon of Authors and Works.

When viewing a text, the TLG Canon of Authors and Works can be
consulted for the work by pressing a button on the Toolbar or by
selecting the "View Canon" menu item.

Supports intermixture of Latin and Greek in a single text.

Search single author or work(s) of an author.

Search a user built list of authors (includes dialog box to make the
lists which are stored as a plain ASCII text file)

Search a date range. When a range of centuries is chosen, all authors
of each century is searched as a group. Summaries are given for each
author and each century. Double clicking on an author summary brings up
the list of matches for that author. Double clicking on a match for the
author brings up the complete text at the match.

When a list of matches or a summary of matches is being viewed, all of
the matches can be copied to the clipboard or printed by highlighting
the lines and giving the appropriate command.

Works of authors can be selected for search by specifying a common
epithet. Thus all works of Epic Poetry or Medical texts can be easily
searched as a group.

Searches are typed in Greek. Diacritical marks can be optionally
entered. The default is to do a double wild card search but word
boundaries can be indicated.

AND, OR, and NOT logic is supported. The exactness of a phrase can be
specified by indicating the number of allowable words (not characters)
between words in the match phrase.

The text is displayed with a scalable font which can be easily enlarged
or reduced.

True Type and Type 1 Greek, Latin, Hebrew and Coptic fonts are
provided. These fonts can be used in any Windows application which
supports fonts.

The raw beta code can be toggled on and off.

TLG Workplace copies text to the Windows clipboard as both plain text
and in Rich Text Format.

Bookmarks can be set.

TLG Workplace 2.0 supports the TLG Word Index. Words can be found with
either a single or double wild card match. The single wild card match
matches from the start of a word and does a wild card match on the end
of the word.

The result of an index search is a list of Greek words and the total
number of occurrences of the word in the TLG. If you double click on
the Greek work, a list of all the works in which this word occurs and
the total for each work is given. If you double click on the summary
for a given work, that work will be displayed.

When a index summary is displayed (either the word lists with totals or
the work list with totals), a search can be launched of that word and
only the relevant works will be searched.

The hypertext help system includes the complete manual on-line.

The TLG Workplace 2.0 costs $85. Updates from TLG Workplace 1.x costs
$15 via mail or free via email (XXENCODED, ZIPped file). Updates from
Lbase cost $65.

The PHI Workplace 2.3 offers similar functions as the TLG Workplace but
it works with the PHI CD-ROMs #5 & #6. The PHI Workplace costs $85.

The Coptic Workplace 1.1 views and searches the Coptic New Testament
and the Nag Hammadi library which are on the PHI CD-ROM #6.

The three Workplaces can be purchased as a bundle (Workplace Bundle)
for $145.
