This project was jointly sponsored by National Taiwan University and the Chung-hwa Institute for Buddhist Studies. It took us alomost a year to digitize Samuel Beal's translation of the Datang xiyu ji 大唐西域記 (T.2087). Because of its length and the many OCR-unfriendly diacritics the work was perhaps not the best choice to start with. Nevertheless, by now most problems with the data are solved and I can offer a no-frills HTML file. If you are interested in the TEI (P4) source please contact me directly.
