PROBLEMS READING WEBSITES
The Internet is presently in an open source environment where there are published standards but no means of enforcement. Many tools that are used to create web pages do not adhere to a standard in terms of basic html, and web pages have become much more than static pages with browsers requiring many embedded programs and constant updating to maintain compatibility with the complex array of content delivered through a browser. It ranges from plain text to all manner of multimedia in many different forms.
Technology is always on the march, and the quest to digitize data aught to include the preservation of access. Thus we are still at the point as of 2015 where hard copies (e.g., books) are still a more secure means for retaining information for posterity.
