New Newsletter Format:
Over the past few months, the newsletter component of Hoax-Slayer has become somewhat pot-bound. With an increasing number of new articles published each month, many of them with multiple images, the newsletter has now become too big to fit on a single web page.
Pot Bound Newsletter
If a web page becomes too big, it can load too slowly, especially for dial-up users, and becomes increasingly difficult to navigate. To solve these problems, I have now established a brand new format for the newsletter.

From this issue on, each newsletter article will load in its very own web page! As previously, you will be able to quickly jump to any article you would like to read from the content menu or, alternatively, just read each item in turn. Content menus located at the top and bottom of each article allow you to easily navigate to any article in the issue. Or you can read each newsletter item in turn by clicking the "Next Article" link at the top and bottom of every page.

This new format will allow me to include more articles in every issue, and I'm confident that it will significantly enhance your user experience.
