I have now added the Masnavi link and the Divan link to the Links page
on my website.
page=view&mod=classicpoems&obj=book&id=51">Online Persian text of the
entire Divan-e Kabir, based on the first seven volumes of Foruzanfar's
edition, based on the oldest manuscripts (Unfortunately, the
Ruba`iyyat are not based on his authentic eighth volume but on the
inferior Isfahan edition of the quatrains added to a one-volume
edition of Foruzanfar's edition).</A></p>
I may write to the man who put these texts on the Internet (http://
behdad.org/) to ask if he can replace the "false Foruzanfar" text of
roba`iyyat withe the authentic text.
