Polish, but not only Sep 25, 2004

My favourites:

http://literatura.net.pl -- There are many Polish classics, and Polish translations of classics here. Quite a lot available for free, other downloadable for a small fee.

www.perseus.tufts.edu -- Absolute germ, a must-knowicon_smile.gif. Mostly Latin and Greek, but you'll find English and other classics here, too. Most importantly, the texts are hyperlinked to scholar commentaries and dictionaries.

http://www.fh-augsburg.de/~harsch/augustana.html -- Many languages, many texts from many centuries; and as far as I know, the entire content prepared by one person...
