Thanks,  I guess I've heard the term "Early Modern English" but I've 
generally used the term "Elizabethan English" also the term Tudor, but have 
never used the two terms quite interchangeably.

You know I must admit that mostly I skim the list of tags because of a 
shortage of time,
but I've found
"Type: grandfathered
Tag: en-GB-oed
Description: English, Oxford English Dictionary spelling
Added: 2003-07-09"

but not Early Modern English yet.

Sorry if I overlooked it.

(I found fro but not fra (ancien francais) or frv (vieux francais)  oh well. 
  Probably too late to change now.)
