Many people volunteered web space (thanks to you all); I chose Metalab at the University of North Carolina. And now, I'm pleased to announce that I have completed the conversion of the source files to XML, and the results are available at http://metalab.unc.edu/webster/ . The XML files total about 52 megabytes, but you can download it as about 13 megabytes of zip files. Please let me know if anything doesn't work, or if I've left out something crucial. Ker-plop!
