Subject: print costs vs. electronic costs

     Dear Mr. Boyce:
     In response to your recent message about saving print costs by 
     producing a robust electronic version of the journal first, I would 
     like to point out that a certain amount of cost is incurred in the 
     editing process. From there a corrected disk can be "poured" into 
     the correct format for a printed page. This step is not necessary 
     in producing electronic copy because of the tagging. But the 
     tagging doesn't produce the printed format (columns and so forth).
     Therefore, I do beg to differ with your assessment of what costs 
     "ought" to be.
