I'm sure you've had many answers already, but I'll take this
opportunity to plug what I think is the best of the hundreds of
places one can get the constitution online (the best free one
anyway; WestLaw's annotated is even better if you can afford it).

is the Government Printing Office's version with history and
analysis of decisions by the Senate, as authorized by 2 U.S.C. 168,
as well as plain text verbatim versions with all the original
spellings, etc.

For your convenience, I've placed the plaintext version from there
on my site at <> and
<>. (Your amendments may be
out of date if they are older than 1992, when the 27th passed).
