Colored Ink

When William Faulkner wrote The Sound and the Fury, he wanted to use different colored inks to indicate the changing time periods in Benjy Compson's narrative. The publisher nixed this idea because it was too expensive at the time to print in color. Well, this site presents a hypertext edition of the novel with Benjy's section color-coded in the left margin. I would prefer to see the actual text color-coded, but it's still an interesting presentation. (April Seventh, 1928 is Benjy's section.)
