HTML-based computer aided language learning

I am looking for information on the use of HTML and the Web as a
platform for delivering computer aided language learning. I am
particularly interested in finding out about attempts to set up
interactive exercises using HTML forms and any of a range of
JavaScript, VBScript, Java or ActiveX. So far the only relevant site
I have come across is one called ALBERT

set up by the Continuing Education

Centre of Oulu University in Finland.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. I will summarise the
responses I receive.

responded to the query about Nelleke Oostdijk

Offensive/pejorative idioms that refer to animals

Together with my friend I am doing a project on offensive/pejorative
idioms in English and Polish that refer to animals. I would appreciate
it if anybody could give me some examples of such expressions from
English or any other languages.

Please include their synonyms/explanations in English (if they come from
other languages than English) and also possibly their origins/etymology.
If I collect enough data I will post the summary of the study to the
