Talk:Newsprint

Information on invention removed because, in spite of about.com article, wood-pulp papermaking appears to have been invented prior to 1838. Accurate information, however, is not easily found: all a quick google search shows is that MANY countries (England, Germany, Candada, France) all claim that wood pulp paper was invented by a citizen of theirs sometime in the 1800s.JDowning 22:50, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

Newsprint[edit]

Can somebody please help me to understand the proper method of editing Wikipedia articles.

Early this month I edited the previous article on newsprint. My contribution included considerably more detailed and up-to-date content than the previous version. However, I have just noticed that the previous version has been placed back on the page in place of my edits.

I am an expert in newsprint, but certainly am not an expert in Wikipedia. Can anybody tell me why somebody replaced my edits with the original version?

Thank you for advancing my education and hopefully making me a useful member of the Wikipedia community.

Just restored your edits, and added some headings. Could still use a ==History== heading here. Carry on... __Just plain Bill (talk) 01:08, 10 August 2008 (UTC)


NewsTrack - do you have any published references you can add to this article? It's unusual for an article of this detail to have no references. I can help you format them if you need help.

U.S. antitrust violations in newsprint pricing?[edit]

If the price of newsprint is relevant, then is it appropriate to include a section on newsprint cartels and mills' production levels? Mydogtrouble (talk) 20:01, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Newsprint terminology, dimensions[edit]

"Web" is apparently an industry standard term describing newspaper dimensions. For us non-experts, its origin deserves mention.

While there is much discussion on industry standard width, there is nothing on the height of a newspaper. This may be of minor interest to most people, but there is a significant variation and some flexibility, and no doubt some interesting history. (I have a recycle project I'm engaged in where I wanted something on newspaper height.)
