As maintainer of GENUKI/Devon I'm all too familiar with the Internet Archive!I didn't think to mention this in my original query. :-)
When I learn of a broken link in GENUKI/Devon, if I can't find any means of repairing it, and I think it is worth it, I commonly replace the link by one to a copy in the Internet Archive. (There was enough information in the copy of this Egg Buckland site for this to be worthwhile, even though the site's graphics have not been archived, as far as I could tell, and the contacts given no longer work.)
