Request: Bible Translations

Does anyone know of a good resource that provides brief comparitive descriptions of some of the most common English translations of the Bible? I've been looking for a 1-2 page guide, but have been surprisingly unsuccessful. If you can point me anywhere (or if you just know a lot about the topic and can write something yourself), just leave a comment or shoot me an email. Thanks!

Fee and Stuart's _How to Read the Bible for all it's Worth_ is a contemporary evangelical classic; it has a chapter on what goes into translation and what distinguishes different translations (if I remember correctly--I don't have a copy with me). It's highly accessible.
