Key features include the following:
*sophisticated search and sort mechanisms that permit users to select and/or sort selected material
*lemmatization of all non-English words to facilitate searches (e.g. "deo" can be found by searching on both "deo" and "deus". A search on "deus" will find all instances of the noun, regardless of its case)
*detailed bibliographical material, including a bibliography of editions of A Collection of Emblemes, a bibliography of Wither's other writings, a bibliography of works frequently attributed to Wither, a copy of the relevant entry in The Union Catalogue of Emblem Books
*Daly and Young planned initially to publish their edition in CD-Rom format. In creating their edition, they used a a relatively inexpensive commercial database software that permits the creation of run-time applications that are cross-platform (PC and Mac). The same software permits the creation of networked applications and web publication. A version of their edition is now available through Studiolum. The editors envision web publication as a future possibility.
