[Taxacom] iSpecies with Wikipedia

As an experiment I've added snippets of Wikipedia content to the  
iSpecies results. If iSpecies finds an article in Wikipedia it  
displays the first 100 words form the article, plus a link to the  
article itself. It's a bit crude, and parsing Wikimedia output is  
painful, but I think it adds to the results. I'd welcome any feedback.
