A list of many online dictionaries. From this I chose the first one below.

The 1st Official Dictionary - ftp://sable.ox.ac.uk/pub/wordlists/dictionaries/Unabr.dict.gz is a gzipped list of 213,557 words.
The 2nd Official Dictionary: Telnet to MarlDOoM - look up words here with "ospd word" and it will say if the word is an acceptable tournament Scrabble word.

I'm working on validating the HTML of all the Ackanomic web pages; see the "Kindler, Gentler Validator" above. All the pages on wilma with direct links on this page, and all the proposals and rules pages are validated, but the CFJ's, party/church pages, and some other stuff remains to be done. I found several more instances of < and > that needed to be converted to &lt; and &gt; by doing this.
