The War of the Worlds: New and Improved--Same as Before

What with the release of the current film incarnation of H. G. Wells's The War of the Worlds with the selfosophy dude in the starring rôle, traffic to the on-line edition of the original novel at this site has exploded in recent days. Notwithstanding its having opened during the Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival, I'll confess to not having yet seen the flick, but interest in the story upon which it is based provided the perfect pretext to upgrade the on-line edition to 100% compliant XHTML 1.0 and clean up the formatting using CSS so it's more readable on the screen.

The new edition supplants its predecessor with no changes to file or fragment names; links--even "deep links" into the text--will not be broken by the transition to the new edition.
