The MemoWare link is one of those "secrets" that I found years ago but there doesn't seem to be any documentation on their current site that would let anyone know it exists. MemoWare is associated with HandMark and distributes rtens of thousands of royalty-free eBooks and databases. Their "wireless" site provides "unzip" services so you can access individual files that are in posted ZIP archives eliminating the need to download the whole archive and unZIP on your device.
The BBC link is actually a "low graphics" version and not completely without images; those present are few and small. It can access both a UK version and "World" version of the pages just like the main graphics version. Its a great URL for desktop machines when connecting through a slow dialup.
