HOW TO LINK TO ARTICLES IN THE E-SYLUM ARCHIVES

Regarding the new look of the E-Sylum archive, Dick Johnson
writes: "All this was created by John Nebel working with Wayne
Homren. I would like to go on record echoing the praise Wayne
directed at John.

I spent three days with John at the Gallery Mint Museum board
meeting last September and I have never met a finer numismatist
and gentleman. John is quiet and unassuming - that's disarming
- he has wide and deep knowledge in so many areas, not the least
of which is ancient numismatics, coin photography and computer
technology.  Thanks John, you deserve the praise.

The archives are so arranged you can access an entire issue,
or a specific article. The index lists all the articles per
issue.  Here is what I have learned about how to go about
linking to this useful new resource.  Note the numbers at the
end of the sample URLs in the previous article. These have
meaning - they pinpoint a precise article in The E-Sylum
Archives.  Here's another sample link, to article 12 in
Volume 8, issue Number 9:

MEDALS IN BOOKS LED TO TWO ART MEDAL SERIES
v08n09a12.html

"v" is for volume number, by year. You will note this is
expressed with the null "0" before the 8 -- that's the zero
on the top line of your keyboard -- not the capital "O" on
the line below.  Next year Wayne will be in volume / year
"10" without a need for a null. (This makes these numbers
uniform in length -- computers like that!)

"n" is for number, the number of the issue that year.
These numbers are not always cosimilar with the number of
the weeks in the year, because from time to time there are
special issues.  The London bombing prompted a special issue
last year, and John Ford's death prompted another. Wayne had
54 issues in total last year. Use the null with issues up to 9.

"a" is for the article.  Count the number of headlines all
in caps and that's the article number. Again, use the null
with article numbers up to 9.
