Hi Nancy,

I just checked the Euromonitor figures, they go back only to 2000.  I  
think I might try looking in trade magazines for the time - something  
like The Industry Standard or Interactive Age is bound to reprint  
that kind of information.  I also checked ClickZ - they have a lot of  
information but I didn't specifically see historical information.   
Good luck.
