I just optimized the print stylesheet a bit, you get somewhat good results in Opera 8/ 9 and IE7...

Just having fun.

A search of the Google News Archive Timeline for the term "Google" shows hits back as far back as the 1890's and ending in 1960. Nothing about the search company.

Sergey begins in 2000. Better

WIth quotes "Larry Page" MUCH better:

Google Corporation
in 2005.

Google Stanford
Is good but begins with a few false drops in the 1930's with stories about Stanford Football.

Google Inc.(formed Sept, 1998)
has nothing before 2004.

This is awesome! There are two typos that I caught, though:

In "The Lesser Nockit", 'Whic' should be 'Which'

In "The Gogo", 'no on' should be 'no one'

unless you're preserving typos in the original? If so a note about that would probably be good.

Thank you so much for posting this! It was one of my favourite childhood books and is away in a box somewhere for when I have children.
