High Cost of Professional Reference Material - was Re: Backing Bars ..

For what its worth, this thread makes me wonder about the "print on demand" ads on radio and TV these days and whether the professional societies use that method to keep costs under control.

I don't know how many pages are in these documents, but the so-called cost per page would be of interest.  I'd also like some measure of "content density" after removed of repeatative information and such.  (Be warned, I have no clue how to measure that objectively.)
