Testing a New Format

I’ve been mulling over the problem of displaying texts with facing translations on the web. It is not as easy as it should be to make it work with various combinations of browser, screen size, and font size.

For my latest attempt, click here. The idea is that the viewer should be able to read either the text and translation (by scrolling left) or the text and apparatus (by scrolling right), though only those with largish screens and smallish fonts will be able to see all three at once. Comments and criticism will be much appreciated. The translation is only a crib, and not a very good one at that, so please restrict your criticism to the formatting.
