The texts in the individual texts are independent, and may be read in any sequence. The grammar, on the other hand, is structured, so that the sections in the various texts must be mastered in sequence. Mastery of them should make possible the reading of any edited Hittite texts.

Note: there are great disparities in capability among personal computers in contemporary use. Unfortunately, support for Unicode® and/or the repertoire of fonts installed on your personal computer cannot be detected by a web server! Accordingly, we have prepared multiple versions of each text; this set of texts is for systems/browsers with Unicode support and fonts spanning the Unicode 3 character set relevant to (Romanized) Hittite. (You may switch to other versions via Option links, below, and links in the upper-left margin of any page.)
