Three Israeli bible mss available for download

At Paleojudaica I learned of this message from Elhanan Adler:

The National Library of Israel, David and Fela Shapell Family Digitization Project, is pleased to announce the digitization of three of the Library’s most important Bible manuscripts… The manuscripts are presented in the DjVu format which provides high quality, magnifiable images compressed into relatively small files for easy downloading. In order to view DjVu images it is necessary to download and install (once) a special free viewer program.

This is a red letter day.  A major library has made manuscripts available in a downloadable, easy-to-use format.  Well done, boys!  That is what we want to see.
