Thanks, Adam.

Sometimes people seem to forget that paper-based publication is still allowable under the Code; and, in fact, it is the explicit intention of some journals to ensure that the paper edition is the version that is published in the sense of the Code.  It would be nice if Journals were more open about which edition is intended to be Code-compliant.  But it's sort of funny to think that, just a few short years ago, Code-compliant electronic publication was considered a rare exception to an otherwise paper-dominated realm.  Now it seems that the table has begun to turn such that establishing availability through the paper edition is seen as the exception.  I guess we could call that progress.
