Painting Over Wallpaper?

Is it feasible to paint over wallpaper, since there are new paints out there?
I know you couldn't do it in the 1999 and beyond.

The condition of the wallpaper will be the determining factor as to whether this is a good idea. Generally, it may be a very good idea but be sure to plan the job carefully and try to have the area free for a few days.
I would recommend you paying a visit to a "real" paint store (not just a department in a store) and try to take a small piece of wallpaper with you so the sales clerk can tell you what paint would be best as well as giving you suggestions on how to best accomplish this task.

I have listed a couple of links that will give you suggestions so you will know what you are facing.

You need to sand down the seams, and apply an oil-based primer to the entire surface.
