This was the textbook I originally learned from, and the one I go back to most often. I know it is also the grammar that RTS Virtual Hebrew Courses work from (so you would already have a large computer-saavy audience who would need this as a mandatory book and may prefer it digitally, since they would be working from their computers).

I used the classic Davidson's Introductory Hebrew Grammar.  Weingreen is another classic introductory text.  Unfortunately, while Davidson's has been heavily updated, Weingreen has not.  I know of a mutual help forum which uses several different texts depending upon which group in the forum is considered.  One group is learning Rabbinic Hebrew which those learning biblical Hebrew use either Mansoor or Weingreen.  I suspect there would be some market for an electronic Weingreen.

I would love to see a digital version of Weingreen's Practical Grammar for Classical Hebrew.

Weingreen is a classic. It's what I learnt Hebrew from, and I know many others who use it regularly. It's ideal for first year students.

I am teaching Hebrew at Anderson University online, and we are heavily promoting the course as an accessible course which sighted and blind students can take together. Weingreen's grammar is the only Hebrew grammar that is available in braille format at this point; and we are using this grammar in my course. I would love to have a digital text available and be able to encourage Logos use for everyone.

Sorry for resurrecting an old topic, but I cannot find another place to ask this. Is anyone aware, other than first/second edition differences, of existing texts of Weingreen that have differences in exercise ordering? I have a student using the same ISBN and publication date, but he has vastly different exercise order--and an answer key.

No. I collaborated on a proposal to revise and update Weingreen's grammar, and the closest I've found is http://mrrives.com/ETH/Manual.pdf and
