In a message that was forwarded by Gerald Cohen, a question is posed
about citing a broken www link.  Perhaps the question could be amended
to read, "how exactly does one cite a broken www link, if it is

Sometimes, it is possible to resurrect a broken link by pasting it into
the following site's 'http' window.


I've had some success with the site, pasting broken links that were
found in a Google search, i.e., once I receive a notice that the link is
nonexistent, I paste the address of the page into the archive search

Thus far, for citation purposes, I note that the site was located
through an archive search.

I'm not aware of any other archival sites, but would like to know about
any that might exist.
