"JofA Looking Good. Brooke, Patrick T"

The online JofA looks great! I’ve appreciated all the changes to the JofA over the last few years, and this is a further improvement. Great job!

I do, however, have a suggestion. Some articles with charts or tables have them within the text, while others require a link to another Web page. I recommend that you make them consistent and include them in the body of the article. It is just as inconvenient to click a link to view a chart under discussion as it would be for the print version to list all charts in the back of the issue.
