Combining philological work and scripts, an SQL database has been created for delivering web services and tools. The raw data files are inserted into the SQL DB enriched with information useful to perform searches and citation extraction. Ajax web pages are automatically generated to increase the usability of the huge amount of FHG contents. The DFHG Project allows to create a large amount of annotations of text re-uses on surviving sources, concurrently building a big survey of fragmentary authors and works, which are part of the Perseus Catalog.
