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.

I am loathe to point to a resource as easily invalidated.

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.
