Well, as a stress reliever I created the Spell Web Service (version
0.1), and at the URL below you can read about this "light-weight"
protocol, try out three almost brain-dead clients, as see the source
1. Simple - returns plain o' XML output complete with DTD
2. Smart - transforms plain o' XML output into HTML
3. British Library - an SRU interface to the British Library
and when zero hits are returned the client tries to improve the
query through spell checking a la Google's Did You Mean? feature
