Side-by-side Tao Te Ching Translations in Parallel Columns

My side-by-side Parallel Translations here

A bigger, better multi-lingual Tao Te Ching translations site here

I recently was turned on to the Tao Te Ching, which I happen to be reading now along with Eckhart Tolle's "A New Earth". I happened to print out the Mitchell translation, and last night I decided I'd like to have several translations in multiple parallel columns. I couldn't find the tool I was looking for on the web, so I rolled my own here. I still need to add dozens of translations, but at least the engine is functional. Now I need to get some rest so I can read what I have done.

Please let me know if I have failed to add a translation you'd like to compare. Please let me know if you'd like to see the PHP code or improve it with a little AJAX. Also please let me know if you have corrections for any of the translations.

Don Webb here,

The translation I would like to see of the Tao Te Ching on your side by side thingy is "Tao Te Ching" by Gia-Fu Feng, Jane English.
