One concern that I have regarding www use and citations of information 
from the web is the transient nature of web pages.  Some will remain 
unchanged for years, but others change almost daily or disappear altogether. 
How can I evaluate a reference that I cannot find, or that might be different
than when the author of a paper accessed it?  It's not that far-fetched, 
I've already had it happen.
