Abstract

Current on-line publications do not allow interaction with the user. Paper documents are often marked up with colored highlighting pens or markers (often color coded to meet user needs). A function similar to paper highlighting for on-line publications is desired.

User Highlighting of On Line Publications

       Current on-line publications do not allow interaction
with the user.  Paper documents are often marked up with colored
highlighting pens or markers (often color coded to meet user needs).
A function similar to paper highlighting for on-line publications is
desired.

      The solution is to enable users to 'mark' blocks of information
with color, reverse image, underline, and/or blinking.  This
user-unique information can be kept in personal storage and 'overlay'
the standard manual when presented.
