A word about internet resources

Note: There is a lot of information freely available on the Internet.  Some websites offer up-to-date, authoritative information while others offer out-dated, misunderstood, and incorrect information.  To complicate matters, it can be very difficult to tell the two apart.  It is important to keep in mind that anyone can publish information on the Internet. You need to be very careful about evaluating information found on the Web, judging each website on its information merit, not just its looks.
