On Leigh Brasington’s site, a collection of sutta translations from Access to Insight in text/data format, for use with Leigh’s own program.

DhammaVinaya is an attempt to organize and give structure to the earliest known teachings of the Buddha. Although interpretations and commentaries of past and present teachers are of great value, the exclusive focus of this site is the Suttapitaka (Basket of Discourses) and Vinayapitaka (Basket of the Discipline) of the Theravada Pali Tipitaka. Even within the Canon, parts generally considered to be of later origin are avoided. The original texts and the translations are laid out side-by-side, so that anyone interested can check and clarify the translations and learn some Pali in the process.
