Amazing. Can I suggest posting these on http://theDataHub.org so they
have a permanent home (even if integrated into Open Shakespeare it
would be nice to see the originals and other may even want to use
them). I'd suggest creating a dataset called FinalsClub Shakespeare
Materials or similar :-)

Also the x-path start and end ranges are in reference to spans that were added to the documents to reflect the sections that the content had previously been split into (one work was made up of multiple sections and the annotation referenced the section the quote is in)

You could add this useful info to the README/notes on theDataHub dataset :-)

Added James as a to person for this email as I know he is really
interested in seeing this material get integrated :-)
