Subject:  difference between versions of American Heritage Dictionary

I am interested in knowing about the usefulness of the American
Heritage Dictionary (AHD) as an etymological tool. What is the
difference between the third and fourth edition of the AHD? What
is the difference between the college edition and the full fourth
edition? Is the CD Rom useful? The dictionary is available for
free on the Interenet; is there anything in the print version
missing on the web site? I will gladly post a summary of whatever
responses I get.
