Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0007110A1] A programmed digital computer (10) includes a display unit (16), an input unit (22), a processor (14), and a storage (20) for storing a program (102) which is executed by the processor (14). The program (102) includes a preprocessor (112) configured to convert a hypertext document (154) into a format which facilitates annotation. The document (154) is a text file in HyperText Markup Language (HTML) which represents a World Wide Web (WWW) page (38) that was downloaded from the internet (26) and is displayed on the display unit (16). The program (102) further includes an annotator (114) which enables a user to annotate the page (38) by using the input unit (22) to modify the document (154). Annotation tools include a graffiti pen (56) for drawing lines on the page (38), a highlighter (58) for highlighting selected text, digital sticker images (60) for pasting on the page, and cyber notes (62) which are similar to digital stickers (60). Annotated web pages (38) can be transmitted as electronic mail messages, and can be printed without sections being cut off.
