As an exercise I attempted to recreate the Wikipedia classification of  
life by extracting information from all pages containing a "Taxobox" .  
I've posted a blog post about the results ( http://iphylo.blogspot.com/2009/06/wikipedia-taxonomy-good-bad-and-very.html 
   http://tinyurl.com/lcxn2s ). You can go directly to the very crude  
browser I knocked together to navigate the Wikipedia pages here: http://bioguid.info/demos/wikipedia/

Regards

Rod
