I think my edition of Caedmon's Hymn does all you are asking about. 'Course it is a nine-line poem, but the edition itself presented 8 or 9 different recensions in all sorts of different arrangements of editorial, diplomatic, reading, and facsimile texts, with different levels of apparatus detail, from "parallel" to "significant substantive variants only."

We're trying to get it online, but it was published on CD-ROM. Contact me if it isn't in your library.

dear all,

i am also looking for good examples of representations of the apparatus
in a digital historical-critical edition.
are there digital editions with footnotes AND an apparatus (like in
printed editions)? or do most genetic or historical-critical editions
look for other possibilities to display text-genetic aspects (as popup
or mouseover or whatever...)?
and: are there editions that actually display more than one witness of a
text (e.g. handwritten original plus a copy or a first print etc.), i.e.
one transcription and two facsimiles possible to display at the same time?

any hints, ideas, thoughts welcome!
