Artificial Image Creation of Architected Documents Via Fax

      A method which allows any architected document form on
AS/400* to bypass Facsimile (FAX) Scan and Send Phases and go
directly and electronically to Image editable form is disclosed.

      The architected data stream is converted into a print image
which could be faxed.  However, instead of printing or faxing, it is
then directly rasterized and presented to the user as a "What You See
Is What You Get" (WYSIWYG) Image. Any Image editor can be used to
change the image.  The Image can then be re-stored as an architected
document, or printed, or faxed.  As long as a stored copy of the
document exists, the process is infinitely repeatable without
intervening manual steps.
