This is a great collection of public domain texts related to ethics.  While someone via searching could find the full text versions of many of the readings used on this site what makes this collection special is that the texts are organized into categories and that the page for each indivual reading contains key paragraphs from the text, reading questions and information about the author of the text.  It's a nice colelction of readings that feature key points and theories from the history of ethics.

Technical Remarks:

The site design is simple but it's very easy to navigate back and forth through the site and there is a very helpful table of contents much as you would find in a tradational textbook.
