Exploding Myths
You may have just finished partying well into the morning with some Latin Americans friends. Maybe you were bowled over by the tremendous energy pulsing through the occassion. Maybe you've just experienced salsa for the first time and know it's what you were born to do.

So you're bursting with questions like, "what makes the music so special, that people just have to move to it?" and "where can I find out more about the dance?"

There's so much material out there it's difficult to know where to start, let alone how to separate fact from myth and opinion. Here might be a good place to begin.

Subject: Encyclopaedia Britannica Internet Guide Award


My name is J.C. Miller and I work within our editorial group at Encyclopaedia Britannica. Our group basically decides what topics are covered and what information is detailed within these topics.

Another thing we do is that for most of our topics, we identify and screen other Web sites to supplement our own content. These Web sites, called iGuide sites, are then presented as recommended resources for our online readers. Our reason for doing this is that we realize that other sites, like yours, also offer high quality content and we want to share that with our members.

As such, I'm writing to inform you that your Web site ( has been approved as a Britannica iGuide site. This means that when one of our members searches on a topic relevant to your site, we not only present Britannica information, but also provide a link to ( for that topic. If you wish, you can promote this fact on your site by downloading a small iGuide button from Britannica's iGuide information page.
