One of the most fabulously useful resources on the Web is the Online Books Page at http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu/ an attempt to keep up and index all books and major texts in=20 English available for free on the Web. A search for Herodotus there turns up one translation of "An Account of Egypt" and three of the "Histories": http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu/webbin/book/search?author=3DHerodotu= s &amode=3Dwords A search for Xenophon turns up too many to summarize here: http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu/webbin/book/search?author=3DXenophon= & amode=3Dwords Also of interest might be the MIT Internet Classics Archive (http://classics.mit.edu/), and the Perseus Project at Tufts (http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/).
