We have now been advised of an etext of Dot and Tot of Merryland (external link) after searching for years.

We are to be sure not the only place these texts can be found.
for versions where the Oz ones,at least,are stored as trees of HTML files, Sunny Koh's Australian site or Project Gutenberg for plain text files.
However,we're aware of noplace else that stores each book as a single HTML file with a "working" table of contents.And providing the Baum Oz texts is the main point of our site,not a sideline of a comprehensive Oz site or book-text site.
