Unfortunately, I’ve never found one that was simultaneously nice-looking and useful, so I went ahead and made an online edition of the Federalist Papers which is pleasant to look at and provides paragraph-level permalinking.

federali.st in Goudy
Bookletter 1911, a lovely, public domain typeface made

.eot with FontForge and
as described in How
to create EOT files without Microsoft WEFT. The favicon
is set in miha’s subpixel italic.
Thanks to Patrick Crowley for the domain name idea, Bill Sullivan for his encouragement, and Erin — for putting up with me working on this when I should have been working on the Snowclones Database.
