The Analytical Engine Overhaul Complete

The collection of historical documents and Java-based emulator for Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine were originally posted in early 1998 and were beginning to show their age. I have been revising at least one document per week for several months, upgrading them to XHTML 1.0 with CSS style sheets, remaking mathematical formulæ with higher resolution, and using Unicode text entities for opening and closing quotes and other special characters. This upgrade is now complete—all of the documents in The Analytical Engine Web tree are now validated XHTML and, I hope, easier on readers' eyes than the original edition.
