This page and the next give a Chinese English translation
of characters of the first five chapters of the tao te ching.
I have use Professor Richter's The Gate of All Marvelous Things
in my literal translation of the tao te ching (Tao
Te Ching Guidebook) and my figurative translation (Spirit
of Tao Te Ching). If you'd like a basic set of xeroxed notes
my Guidebook will serve; however, if you'd like something more extensive

"Professor Richter has provided an invaluable
service to all who are interested in Classical Chinese. Whether
you only want to check up on an occasional passage of the Tao Te
Ching... or, learn Chinese inductively by memorizing an actual text...
Richter's text will prove invaluable. Not only has he given us the
Chinese graphs in a well-printed large clear font... but he also
provides the pinyin transliteration for each graph, a detailed interlinear
graph-by-graph gloss, and a final English translation."
