Last year marked the first time clothing retailers attracted more online shopping dollars than computer and software e-tailers took in. Travel continues to eclipse all other forms of consumer spending online, however, accounting for $73.4 billion in revenue in 2006. Revenue for apparel, accessories and footwear bought through the Internet totaled $18.3 billion, compared to $17.2 billion for computer-related purchases, reported Shop.org, the online division of the National Retail Federation.
