Make better use of Federal Register 2.0

Federal Register publishing drives the production of so many agency materials. The new Federal Register offers improved search functionality and an API. Individual articles have a clean, friendly look and feel. Individual paragraphs and headings have their own ID for building links and citations. Rules include links for comments; FR, CFR, USC, and Federal Law references are hyperlinked (this still needs more work); contents are hyperlinked to text headings.

 

Hats off to GPO for their thoughtful remake -- maybe they could offer workshops on how to better take advantage of their new features.
