A +1 on having more than one link. As the person who put the original link
to Wikipedia there (and, in another link, as someone who teaches university
students that Wikipedia is just as good as any other encyclopedia), I do
want to make it clear that I don't support the original emailer's assertion
that Wikipedia is inaccurate or unauthoritative. If we do want a second
link, the EC one is as good as any and better than most, but I do see it,
as Dave, Martin and Nate all said, as a good additional place to point
