I agree. But McGraw Hill is having a pilot program in which they are putting
a couple of their computer publications on-line 3 months before the hard
copy is going to be available.

This whole issue of Internet publication has to be evolve and how it is
going to happen I do not know. On the other hand, for unknown and rookie
writers who cannot find a publisher or cannot afford to self publish print
version, Internet publication may be *the* only means of publishing.
