I have the same habit, and the same problem, and also haven't been
able to find anything...the old one got 'upgraded' to a web version -

I moo-mailed with someone on Lambda who thought he might be writing
something to strip the html off one of the web versions, and offerred
to share it.  If he doesn't end up doing it before too long I'll
probably do it myself, and I'll be happy to share.  If he does it,
I'll ask if I (or he can, if he's on here - I don't know his real
name) can post it here.

Of course, if anyone finds another webster server, please do post
about it here!

 A wizard's work is never done, but that's okay, it's mostly all fun!
