   PREMIERE
     Margin was launched on January 15, 2000.

   FREQUENCY
      Margin's frequency began as perpetual and infrequent. That is, content was added
      as it was found so that the website continuously grew at a rate manageable for its
      staff. In 2004, the stuff switched to its current triquarterly schedule. Published works
      remain accessible for the lifetime of the website, unlike many websites, some which
      archive their works after as short a period as one week.

     Please see our Mission Statement

H O W
     Margin is accessible by most browsers (Netscape 2,3 and 4; Microsoft Internet Explorer
     3,4 and 5; AOL 4; WebTV 1) running on all sorts of operating systems (Windows
     3.1, 95, 98 and NT; Macintosh; WebTV; Linux2; SunOS2; HP-UX).

     Most search engines include Margin at the top of their listings. Dozens of websites also refer
     visitors regularly to Margin.

     Visitors are encouraged to print out sections and read them offline to prevent eye
     strain and to save on online charges. The website is meant to be read, not surfed,
     which means some sections can run longer than traditional online fare.
