There is now a free e-book version of Fausboll's translation of the Sutta Nipata here:
There is a not
-free version available on Amazon.com. I've never looked at it so I don't know how good the formatting is. In the book linked to above, the footnotes have all been hyperlinked and moved to the end of the book. The Pali is in proper unicode letters. If someone has the amazon version, I'd be interested in hearing how it compares to this one.
Considering the translation was done well over 100 years ago it is remarkably lucid and accurate. However, someone without a strong background in the suttas would be advised to stick with more contemporary works. One of the ways that Fausböll keeps the text from feeling dated is by leaving many words untranslated. This, of course, has both advantages and disadvantages.
Viggo Fausboll () was one of the earlier translators of Pali. He is the one who translated the Dhammapada into Latin.

Many thanks to the folks who looked at the drafts.
