If you want to read the Dead Sea Scrolls, you can now do so online. The Israel Museum of Jerusalem (IMJ) has put five scrolls on its site, with the help of a process designed by Google.

From the article:
Quote
Ardon Bar-Hama, a noted photographer of antiquities, used ultraviolet-protected flash tubes to light the scrolls for 1/4000th of a second. The exposure time - which is much shorter than a conventional camera flash - was designed to protect the scrolls from damage.

Since its being publicized by a Jewish museum, I'm not surprised that they don't mention the LXX in their notes on the variant versions of Isaiah.  If one is aware of the bias present, the site is a great treasure.

if their academics are worth a lick they would have mentioned it ( i would think). 

Which variant versions of Isaiah exist in the LXX?
