Hello World!

Remember your first computer program? Mine was something like this:
10 REM Hello World in BASIC
20 PRINT "Hello World!"
In fact "Hello World" or some variant is the first piece of code that most people cut - especially when trying to get to grips with a new language. There's something rather enjoyable about seeing that hunk of metal and plastic suddenly do just what you told it to do.

So how about 206 different "Hello World" implementations, in as many different languages?
