      The 1911 ("Scholars' Edition") <A HREF="http://www.1911encyclopedia.org/">Encyclopedia Britannica</A> is also online,
      scanned in rather roughly, so there are some typos, esp with foreign
      languages, and not indexed perfectly, but still, a major resource if you
      aren't looking for Up To Date-ness - and in many fields, the old stuff is
      still good.

      For instance, fabled mythologic scholar Jessie L. Weston wrote the Holy
      Grail article.

      I actually own (and treasure) a set of the 1911 EB, a wedding gift from a
      very fine librarian and friend of the family.
