In things tangentially related to Wikipedia, I've started a project to create an electronic markup format for corrections to all those things that aren't Wiki. With my vast imagination, I've decided to call it the ProofReading Markup Language, or PRML for short. (SourceForge project site)
I'm now contributing to the German and Russian Wikipædiæ in my own small way, too. (And in case you can't tell by my abuse of 'æ's, I just wish there was a Latin Wikipædia for me to contribute to, too.)
I'll be demmed, there is a Latin Vicipædia!!! :) I always wondered if there was a language code for Latin; never could find one in a list. Now I'm going to have to find out if 'la' is really official, or just what they use because it makes sense.
