Variable Length On-Line Document Generation



This paper describes a system for variable-length document presentation: on-line documents whose length can be adjusted to the user's demands. The system depends on an initial marking-up of documents using an RST Markup Tool - a graphical interface for marking up the rhetorical structure of a text. During presentation, the rhetorical structure is used to prune the text down to the size requested by the user, allowing retention of the essentials of the text.
