Go to hear Peter! I've now gone ahead and done the update and things now 
look rather different:


Main new features are the search facility:


And the statistics section which supports showing stats by text of by 
word, e.g. love and death:


Or by text e.g. Hamlet:


There's quite a bit of polishing still to do (some examples are given 
below) so if you'd like to help out please say :)



Prospective Improvements

   * We need to finish off proof-editing the scan of the EB 11 entry for 
     * <http://okfn.org/wiki/tmp/BritannicaShakespeare>

   * We need to 'mark-up' underlying texts both for display and search 
indexing purposes

   * The search side of things needs:
     * pagination support for results
     * better linking to the underlying texts
     * ability to search only certain works

   * Stats side of things:
     * Index of words
     * Normalization of stats
     * Tutorial on doing stats analysis from code
