Edmund Spenser's Fowre Hymnes is now available in html at the Spenser

Apologies to those who who rather not see this done if it is not a) in SGML;
b) authoritative and done only from scholarship done in the last 10 years.
The fact is nobody pays me to do this and so please think of it as the
"Signet Classics" version! :-) If anyone would like to use it as a
springboard to a better version they should feel free to download the text
and re-edit and re-code as desired.
