Italian chemist makes his own Shroud of Turin

An Italian chemistry professor named Luigi Garlaschelli likes Jesus's burial cloth so much he made his own. Carbon dating prove the original Shroud of Turin was made in the Middle Ages. Garlaschelli created his shroud using materials available then. He put a sheet on a volunteer, and rubbed pigment and acid over it. It was then aged with an oven and by washing. Then he added blood stains, burn holes and other finishing touches. Voila! It's a miracle!

Mikey, as a computer nut and professional editor you know full well that you are missing an accent mark in "voilĂ " which is so easy to do in Windows by setting your keyboard to U.S. International -PC, and very easy to do finally in Mac now that SnowLeopard finally lets the user pick U.S. International PC too for the keyboard! Of course with all the problems in the world today, is it really that important? I like the look of properly written words....
