Note: Websites come and go on the internet.
All the websites referred to in the Articles existed at the time they were written.
Some of these websites no longer exist.
Some 'dead' sites have been replaced by new 'live' sites, e.g. webpages on
http://www.wikipedia.org/, but not all were able to be replaced.
It is a sad fact of internet life, and beyond our control.
