IntraText Digital Library - a few thousand texts in English and many other languages in a heavily hyperlinked concordance format.

Interesting. I guess it's useful mainly as a concordance to the texts included, which lean heavily to the religious. (Needless to say, I like the multilingual aspect, but... Chamorro and Letzeburgesch, but no Russian? WTF?)

It's an old site, and it seems they did not plan well to accomodate non-Latin alphabets. Some accent marks are just plain ignored, for instance in Polish. And while they do accomodate a few languages via transliteration... they might as well just not. Reading Russian in transliteration gives me a migraine.

The search results page doesn't work with Safari. Handy reference to add to my bookmarks though. Thanks Wolfdog.

Cool, I've been meaning to read The Art of War. I didn't know what a concordance was but I can see how it'd be useful.

I see no mention of suicide bombers.
