Work on the project is in two parts: on the one hand writing and editing encyclopedic entries, and on the other, designing the software which will allow the data to be put on the Worldwide Web.
Up to now, two thousand entries have been written. This corpus of information is large enough to be of use to the scholar/enthusiast, and once edited by scholars will be ready to put on the Worldwide Web.
Work on the software is due to start soon, and while it is being written, it is hoped that, with the help of anyone willing to volunteer their writing services, further entries will be written.
Once up and running, the hypertext encyclopaedia can continue to be updated with further entries, and it is hoped that a figure of three thousand entries will eventually be reached.
