Because a site has a link to another site which may or may not be
"mainstream" it does not give reason to believe the site itself and those
involved with it are not "mainstream".
There may be a good reason for that link or at least a good reason of
conscience for that link. 

I believe we would be hard pressed to find many Christians who ONLY have
mainstream christians work on their houses cars or church property.
Though I am sure we agree that they should all be used in our variouse
ministries for Christ.

I don't believe the "foundations" used here, DOS, Window, Linux are from
"mainstream" Christians. 

If a J.W. produced a pure text of Wescott and Hort and no one else had
yet. And I had the choice of copying it or duplicating the effort I would
take the text. After all the text is the final result, not J.W. doctrine.
I would also be glad to offer a link to it for those that could be
blessed by it (with appropriate warnings if needed.
