Generally, when you publish something you are required to assign the
copyright to the publisher, which means that you can no longer do
anything with it without the publisher's permission. For example, you
can't legally publish it on the web without their permission. Adding
"To appear in XXX journal" makes no difference.

Different publishers have different policies: some allow you to post
the final version of a journal article on the web, some allow you to
post only the submitted version (before the refereeing process), and
some don't allow you to post anything.

I know nothing about the publisher who began this thread, but the idea
of publishing, e.g. , conference proceedings simultaneously on the web
and in print (for libraries and individuals who wish to have a bound
copy) is an excellent one.
