Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9845788A1] A method for automatically formatting a complex document, which consists of text, graphics, or multimedia elements, displays the document on a computer screen. Input may be in the form of plain text with minimal instructions in conjunction with page structure definitions which describe the general "look and feel" of the desired. The actual content may be changed while maintaining the formatting structure without the necessity for reinputting the formatting instructions. Formatting is done within a page by page structure with the ability to display the beginning of multiple articles on a single page and continue them on subsequent pages. For example, the method could be used to automatically display a personalized electronic newspaper.
