New Examining the OED website
I've just finished work on a new website for the research project I'm collaborating on with Charlotte Brewer. It's built using Mambo Open Source, which, while it took a little while to get used to, is much better than writing an old-fashioned static HTML site with Dreamweaver MX 2004. The research we're doing is scrutinizing the Oxford English Dictionary, that formidable British institution, which, although it is an impressive work, is given a little bit too much respect, especially by English scholars. You can see the new website here: http://oed.hertford.ox.ac.uk/main/.
