In the 1994 UBC section 1631.1 there was a requirement which reads "For
materials which use working stress procedures, dead loads shall be
multiplied by 0.85 when used to reduce uplift".  I do not see this
requirement in the 1997 UBC.  Does anyone know if this requirement was
completely deleted or perhaps moved to some other mysterious section??
