Text of the Douay-Rheims translation available for download

Here's something worth sticking on your PDA or SmartPhone: the entire text of the venerable Douay-Rheims translation of the New Testament (1.2 MB), or alternatively, the Old and New Testaments (5.4 MB).

Officially approved by the Church, and still popular with traditionalist Catholics today, the translation has a quaint ring to it:
And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us (and we saw his glory, the glory as it were of the only begotten of the Father), full of grace and truth. John beareth witness of him and crieth out, saying: This was he of whom I spoke: He that shall come after me is preferred before me: because he was before me.
