Preserving a butterfly

I found a dead butterfly in perfect condition just a day ago and I would
like to preserve it.  I have seen preserved butterfly in those glass
displays but have no idea how to go about doing this.  If someone could
send me some detail information or point me to some articles on the web,
that would be greatly appreciated.

Please note that I am not a butterfly (or insect) collector and would
never kill or destroy anything in the wild.

Please reply via e-mail (remove _dodo.bird from my address) since I
don't read this newsgroup at all.

Thanks in advance.
