By 1998, in the world, primarily in the United States, there were already some interesting examples of daily newspapers that came out on the Internet, and more or less successfully started to charge some of the on-line content and experiences that have been collected by domestic experts, pointing out to the fact that only one direction of development is possible: The paper edition and the Internet must be supportive to each other, so that the reader on the portal will receive ‘introduction’ or basic information, while in the morning there will be the main story waiting on the kiosk. And vice versa: Part of the news content that is released in the paper because of lack of space in a compressed form can be extended to an online edition so that a reader who wants to find out more, on the Internet gets more information and story background.
