    The usagae of a strange "so"????

    "Time is a weekly news magazine founded by Briton Hadden and Henry R. Luce. Time’s current circulation is about 4.3 million. In 1981 its advertising revenues were up 13 percent to $ 245.3 million, the highest in the US. Time summarizes the news concisely and completely, gives background, organizes and departmentalizes the news each week. It covers national and foreign affairs, books, art, theatre, cinema, music, education, religion, medicine, law, science, finance, sports, press and milestones. And it so did with unquestionable success."

    "It did this with unquestionable success".

    "So" in this position is referring back to something previously mentioned, in this case its coverage of these topics.
