Have you transcribed an original source document to share?

My current project for IA GenWeb is transcribing the 1900 Census for Lucas County.  I can transcribe one sheet in about an hour depending on how difficult it is to read the handwriting.  I am really picky!  If I cannot figure out the letters, I insert * in its place.  I use Excel and created the census form myself.
Using Excel was way too heavy and bogged down the browser when loading the census pages.  I downloaded Edit Pad lite and created an HTML template that works much better.
