This looks great! One question though, would it be possible to modify this for a foreign language dictonary? I'd love to be able to type check dog and have it give me from an online german dictonary der Hund, -e

    Sure! I have a Spanish-English version already. If you point me to an on-line english-german dictionary I'll make it work with it.(or you may do it yourself and post the new version back)
      A german-english dictionary is avaible at dict.leo.org
      This is the german dictionary I prefer. Providing as much information on the word as possible would be the most useful, such as article, the plural form, etc etc. I'll take a look at it myself and post my results, but I'd love to see your spanish port.

        This is the spanish-english version. It's not currently working because they just changed the user interface to the site. Note that the only significant difference to my webster client is that this one uses the POST protocol. Feel free to contact me if you run into any problems.
