1996? Really? I'm pretty sure there were other electronic textbooks a
few years earlier -- I have to find my old copy of Anton's 4th edition
calculus on CD (not very interactive, but it had its uses) -- I think
it was from 94 or 95,but I could be wrong. The basic point is still
probably valid, though it really depends on what you want to call a
textbook -- online tutorials and electronic courses delivered via CD
or over the web are in electronic format and some of them are VERY interactive
-- maybe too much to be called a "textbook" anymore.
