IMO, there are many web archiving situations where it is more appropriate
to just focus on the content rather than the manifestation of the content.
Just as you wouldn't expect a 1995 article from the NYT to be displayed as
the website was in 1995 or an article in an online database to actually
appear like it originally appeared online, it's the content rather than the
skin that's relevant in the case of a newspaper. If you make sure it's in a
format that can be migrated forward and added to standalone or union
systems that provide access to this sort of stuff, you'll be fine.
