A letter in this week's Nature (20 June), claims that "The current version of
the Zoological Code officially recognizes new names posted on websites as
long as five hard copies are deposited in libraries" and adds "The resultant
mess will take decades to clear up."

This is (I thought) untrue, since Article 9.8 excludes primary publication on
www.  The nearest thing to ad lib publishing under the zoo code is CDrom.

Clearly, if I'm not off beam here, 'we' (I include americans also ;-)) should
rebut asap.
