Hi.. Before I say anything, this is off-topic for this listserv
because W3C is an internationally focused, i.e. universally active,
organization.

That said and with 1970's era Civics classes in mind, it was
recognizable that you were most likely addressing the United States'
Constitution, a copy of which may be found here:

http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/constitution_transcript.html

On that page, they call their copy "a transcription of the
Constitution as it was inscribed by Jacob Shallus on parchment". In
other words, that's how it was written several hundred years ago..

Most unhumbly, whenever I see something of historic value written in
its original language and regardless of the subject matter or country
of origin, I feel instantly somehow "attached" to, sometimes even
bonded with, those events of the past. I can certainly understand and
thus support why the original language of *anything* remains many
generations later.

Cindy :)
