Very useful explanation, thanks, Helma!
Would anyone be willing to give a brief account of the various
projects/tools that have been mentioned here (Okus, Attikos, Alpheios,
Perseus, ...), with URLs, the relationship between them, etc.?
(Perhaps we should also include such a summary in the DC wiki
somewhere... as well as individual project pages.)

People don't make a habit of giving credit to Perseus; but at least Okus doesn't charge for the Windows wrapper, unlike other apps out there.
