- Copyright Website
- Created by attorney Benedict O'Mahoney in 1995, this award-winning site is still providing "practical and relevant copyright information for anyone navigating the net." You'll find friendly access to the basics of copyright law, so you can do the right thing when using clip art, icons, or graphics for your home page. You'll also find free forms and a fee-based copyright registration wizard to help protect your own original work. Want to learn more about the legal issues? Visit the casebooks of audio and visual copyright outlaws -- from Leslie Nielsen's "Final Insult" to George Harrison's unconscious borrowing of a Chiffons motif.

- Dr. Grammar
- Everyone has questions about language, usage, and punctuation. When you're unsure whether to use who or whom, just call on Dr. Grammar, an English professor at the University of Northern Iowa who "lives for this stuff." The usual suspects such as hyphens, colons, and commas are covered, but the good doctor also discusses more complicated issues, such as subjunctive mood and using a possessive with a gerund. Even if you're uninterested (or is it disinterested?) in grammar, this site can be a lifesaver when choosing between who or that or which or what.

- Today in History
- Visual Thesaurus - This experiment in language and interface has been around for a few years, but its recent redesign merits the attention of word-lovers around the world. A "tool to explore, study, and analyze the structure of language," this dynamic thesaurus displays the interrelationships between words and meanings. After you type a word into the search box, the Visual Thesaurus displays the word at its center. This is where it gets good -- when you click on a word, you create an entirely new web of words. The updated site not only adds a visual component to the process of finding synonyms, it allows you to find 14 other categories of relationships. Although it might not be the most practical thesaurus on the Web, the amazing site presents a near-perfect combination of content and design.
