More and more information is being read from cathode ray tube (CRT) screens. Despite improvements in many areas -- display technology, readability of character sets, usable amount of information on a frame, software for handling pages -- a glaring fact remains: reading and browsing through information is still more pleasant using a stack of sheets of paper than using a display screen and electronically stored information. Yet, the preparation of hard-copy pages for once-only (or never) reading seems expensive and wasteful. It is the authors' contention that this need not be the case if new concepts, such as printing on demand, and a concept we shall call multi-time paper (M-paper, for short) are used.
