NEC still readable at NFPA.org??

HI guys:

Recently I went to the NFPA web site to check something in the NEC (like I have done several times for the past couple of years).

However, I wasn't able to find the place on the web site where I could "read" the NEC.

Is this feature still available or has it been removed?

If it is still there, where did I miss it?

Thanks,
s?Mike

The 2005 but not the current edition is available. https://www.nfpa.org/catalog/service...%3Fid%3D7005SB but you must sign up.

Frankly I find it just about useless because there seems to be no way to increase the print size. Anybody no a way short of changing monitor resolution?

Print Size

Copy and paste to a Word document and increase the font size.

Copy and paste disabled. May be a work around but that would get very cumbersome on a 200 page document. They sell it and I guess they do that as an incentive to buy.

Thank you for the thought.

Font size

Ray, I may have stumbled onto something. I am using Firefox as my browser. "Control+" (hold the control key and hit the + key) enlarges the print size.

May be worth a try.

"Control -" reduces the print size.

The problem is it runs in some sort of third rate Java powered viewer similar to but not PDF so usual browser workarounds don't work. Not important. Was just more of a comment. Last resort if I really need to use it I can get up out of my easy chair, walk over to the monitor, find a stool, and set down a few inches from the monitor. Not convenient but doable Thanks though.
