Web-based dictionary in Common Lisp

This is a very simple but quite effective web-based dictionary that I put together using Common Lisp and Araneida. It does some basic spell-checking so, for example, you could find the definition of "Lisp" by searching for "LiasSp".

I used a free dictionary from the Gutenberg Project to provide the definitions. You can download my copy of it here (3.6 MB).

Here's the code:
