Billed as the first periodic table on the World Wide Web, WebElements: Periodic Table Scholar Edition is authored by Mark Winter of the University of Sheffield, England. Although many similar online periodic tables can be found, this offering is unique in that the material is presented in a light hearted and interesting way. The main page contains the table and all the common associated information, but each individual element, when clicked, contains a wealth of additional facts including various multimedia files. For example, the sodium (Na) page has a picture, an audio description, movies of an experiment using Na, and even a cartoon. This and the fact that nearly every descriptive term on the site has an explanatory link makes it well worth exploring.
