Sorry to take such a long time to reply - I saw your message before
Christmas, but then I got swept away on a tide of festivity.
Thanks for the response, anyway. In answer to your question, no, I'm not
clever enough to automate the removal of important bits. In any case if it
was automated it would be less fun, I think.
I really like this idea, and the site looks great. Do you edit out the
important bits by hand, or have you automated it in some way?

> "Mr Thornton walked rapidly, without awaiting Dixon's slow movements.
> Margaret stood by the tea-table, resolved. The lines in her father's face
> were soft and waving, with a frequent undulating kind of trembling, the
> dreamy lids a considerable distance from the eyes. Mr Thornton's straight
> brows fell low, principally about the lips, one moment stretching from
> to sky and filling all the width of the horizon, at the next obediently
> compressed into a vase."
> Continuing the abridged version of Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South -
> abridged on the principle of leaving out all the important bits. Mr
> Thornton's horse-obsessed mother is introduced; local girl Bessy Higgins
> declares a penchant for Satanism; and the servant Dixon becomes ever more
> sinister in her behaviour.
