     The 1997 UBC has evolved from the 1994 NEHRP Provisions, but in reality 

     looks more like the soon-to-be-published 1997 NEHRP Provisions.  For a 
     better understanding, see your latest SEAOC Blue Book, Appendix C.
     
     Page 2-1 of the 1997 UBC indicates that the entire Chapter 16 has been 
     revised ... therefore no bars in the margin.
