The British Library has some digitised manuscripts on their web site called Turning the Pages. They include the Lindisfarne Gospels (beautiful Celtic artwork) and the Luttrell Psalter (many humourous figures in the margin).

The BL appears to be using their own technology to show the manuscripts on-screen; one of the coolest aspects is the magnifying glass. Drag it around for a closer view of a portion of the page you want to see better.
