"Dead links" are an inevitability on the World Wide Web. Texts have no permanence and depend on their originator for updates and a stable Uniform Resource Locator (URL). Site owners have disputes with Internet Service Providers (ISPs), they don't pay their bills, or they just lose interest. Because this dissertation uses off-site links, over time some of those links will go dead. I have tried to minimize the disruptive effect of dead links by creating a substantial archive of the materials at some of these sites (used with permission). I also launch all off-site links in a separate window, so dead links won't affect the mainscreen texts.
