Database of Periodic Tables

For the past month I've been doing the Sporcle quiz, Can You Name the Elements of the Periodic Table? The most I've gotten right is 117 out of 118 elements -- there's always at least one I can't remember, although it's not always the same one. This effort made me curious about how the elements of the table are organized and how the data is presented visually to show relationshjps and led me to the Internet Database of Periodic Tables.
