Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9742576A1] A method and an apparatus (200) for using a propertied URL ("PURL") comprising three components: a URL address; a descriptive name for the URL; and a property that defines whether the URL represents an image map. The invention maintains an embedded list of PURLs within an application work document, such as a word processing document, presentations graphics document, etc. PURLs can be stored within a document without being used, letting a user work from a predefined list (202) before actual URL hyperlinks have been created within the document. A PURL can be defined by manually entering a URL in a PURL List Dialog (200), or by dragging a URL from a web browser and dropping it on a document. The PURL List Dialog (200) shows a list of all URLs that are stored in the document and provides editing features (208).
