Tao Te Ching

Twenty-eight Interactive Translations

Instructions

Point your browser to INDEX.HTM on the CD-ROM.

The Chapter index contains a 9 x 9 table with each cell linked to a file containing all versions of that chapter, presented sentence by sentence, each sentence 23 times in each table. Sentence division follows structures provided by the translators, however, some sentences have been further divided to achieve a "best fit". Each sentence is linked through a key line at the top of the table and each sentence is linked back to the top of the file through the Ch. notation in the first cell of each table. The key line links to the Index page, the previous chapter and the next chapter.

The Author index contains links to 28 complete versions. Each version is divided into separate chapters and sentences using numbers, e.g. 3.2 is the second sentence of chapter 3. To see any individual chapter click on its number in the 9 x 9 table presented at the top of each version; to return to the top click on the indent space following any .1.

Five versions are not divided, or presented in the Chapter index, as they do not follow traditional sentence structuring. Link back to the top in these chapters by clicking on the chapter number.
