Should we provide links to outside resources?
We're already adding in pleiades.stoa.org links for places, but we *could* add links to other places where appropriate. For example, we *could* add wikipedia/perseus links to characters. Are there any online resources we can add that look specifically at events?
note: the Pleiades links may be easier to add - I need to look at the rdf resource that you can get for each text (e.g. Apol. rdf is here: http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/xml/Perseus%3Atext%3A1999.01.0022.pleiades.rdf - note the end bit '1999.01.0022' which is the Perseus id for Apollodorus in English).
Inside the rdf file each instance of a place is inserted, but without a place name!.
We can at least break down the resource based on section markers, though, as sections are internally referred to like this: "perseus-eng1:2.8" which refers to section 2.8, so it's trivial to chop the rdf file in to chunks.
If we end up with an rdf fragment we can further reduce it to the unique occurrences of oac:hasBody tags within the section. I *think* each place is referred to sequentially, so RAs should not have a too-hard job of extracting Pleiades IDs from the fragments.
