UNIVAC Memories Updated

It's been more than ten years since most of the documents in the UNIVAC Memories archive were posted, and they'd become rather quaint by the contemporary community standards of the Web. I have just completed a revision of all of these documents, updating them to XHTML 1.0 (mostly Transitional DTD, but some Strict) using the common style sheet used by most new documents on the site. All documents have been validated for XHTML and CSS standards compliance with the W3C Markup Validation Service. Typography has been upgraded, with Unicode character entities used for opening and closing quotes, dashes, ellipses, and special characters. Apart from correction of a few typographical errors I discovered in the process of updating the documents, the content is mostly the same, although an exterior picture, contributed by a reader, of the building which housed the computer has been added at the end of The Case 1107 document.
