Wikiproxy Greasemonkey script
Who made it?
How does it work?
The script parses any web page you're looking at for likely 'Proper Noun Phrases' - these are then passed to a PHP script that returns those matches that actually exist as titles in the English Wikipedia, so that they can be turned intohyperlinks.
$%^^&$!> Solo Inglés?
At present, the database of titles only contains phrases from the English wikipedia. We're working on including the rest, and then the wikiproxy should understand pages in any language.

If you want to play with the API, you can use this form. Note that the standard for phrases is that Spaces_In_The_Phrase must be underscores . The return format should be self-explanatory. Records are only returned if they appear in wikipedia. Pass a list of phrases as a POST in a variable called 'text' to
http://wikiproxy.whitelabel.org/xml.php to use it.

You are all welcome to use this API for anything you like. Please be reasonable, and let us know if you do something clever with it, so we can take the credit. :)
