Alternative to screenshots for viewing old versions of websites

Reader comment on item: Istinja' with the Torah and New Testament

Hi Daniel,

I noticed that you used a screenshot of the fatwa in question because it had been removed.

The other possibility is to use a web site whose purpose it is to record old versions of websites. e.g. http://web.archive.org/collections/pioneers.html

It's similar to a google search using the "cached" result, which is often older.

Also, a readability issue with your original post: I was concerned that adjacent to your paragraph which begins "Interestingly, Fatwa #40378 is no longer posted at the Encyclopedia of Fatwas..." you've got a picture adjacent to it which may be misinterpreted as the fatwa that you mentioned in the paragraph by those who don't click on the link.
