Uh, um, I believe you go to England, and go to the British Library, and
somewhere in there is the computer they were talking about.

All joking (or half-seriousness/half-joking) aside, though, if the
following URLs still work...

http://portico.bl.uk/diglib/treasures/tyndale-bible.html

uk/diglib/magna-carta/magna-carta.html

...then most of the works mentioned are up for viewing on the 'net, just
not with the handy-dandy, page-turning program that they spoke of, that's
available to users at the library itself.

>Ron you are always so good to us.

Thanks Janet, although I do trust and have faith that there are those who
might feel otherwise -- it's good to have balance in one's life.

Ron ;)
