Hi,

Does anyone have any information about companies that use printed key codes
that users can plug into a web interface and be taken to a specific web
page referenced by this code?  This is specifically used in the textbook
industry.

Here is how it would work:

       A user would see "CYT5678" in a textbook.  The book would say go to
      our website and type in this web code to learn more about air
      pollution.  The user would then plug that code into the web code box
      and be directed to a page about air pollution.

      Does anyone have any experience with this or know of any research on
      a project like this?  You can find a web code interface here:
