FYO, the translation of UFO in French is OVNI (objet volant non identifié) and not UFO.
Many congratulations on the project. What's happened to the thesaurus, by the way?

Barnaby, for now I included the Thesaurus only when you click on the term. I made a single page for every word, which includes all synonyms.

OK Phillip. Many thanks.

By the way, I'm still building the Synonyms database. It's currently at "T". And thanks for your comments.

Don't you think it would be appropriate to name – and link – the source for each screen-scraped definition? Google does. Besides giving credit to the original creator of the content, it might also protect you from being fully responsible for it. Just in case there's something fishy among the definitions.

Andreas, I changed the Encyclopedia so it would have an extended "This was built using..." on every page.
