Thanks, F. Do you happen to know if there is any review of the user editing that is done? It's a little wiki-ish. In the case of wikipedia, there is no review of the user editing at all, so I could edit the page on Hannukkah to describe it as a Mayan blood sacrifice ritual, dedicated to the God Zarniwoop. I am loathe to point to a resource as easily invalidated.

I suggested it for the wealth of old Germanic dictionaries, editing of which is all done and gone lo these many years hence. Might not be the latest research, but

Good enough. I was just a little concerned by this:
"The Volunteer page contains a sophisticated web-based system which allows you to reserve a dictionary page, correct it, and submit the corrections. Please volunteer!"

I don't think you have this one, Max:

But beware. There's quicksand in there.

Thanks to Lizzie on w/origins for pointing out the BBC site element:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/C54721

Lots of interesting specific topics summarised for example, see: Alphabets and writing systems / The development of the Western Alphabet.
