One such dictionary is the hypertext Webster interface, found on the Web at
http://c.gp.cs.cmu.edu:5103/prog/webster. It's a search-engine interface
to a dictionary database which lives on a Webster server at the U of
Michigan. Coolest feature is that the definitions include hyperlinks for
related words.
