Happy Birthday To Us

In December 1999, the Today Page celebrated it's 5th birthday. 3 makeovers and many other changes have gone by since then! (akebono.stanford.edu anyone? VOA's gopher headlines... GNN...).

Look out in the early part of 2000 for the Today Page channel - XML/RSS feed of On This Day, and for the new Timeline section.
