Constructs which are not MO:DCA (A Document Interchange Data Stream Architecture) defined (e.g., Logical Elements such as Figures, Lists, Paragraphs, etc.) may also be identified as indexable elements within a document. These elements may then be independently accessed by a document composer for modification/display without processing the preceding document constructs that contribute to its current state processing requirements. A document residing in a library might be as follows: Begin Document . Document Index (Index Element) Text Object5-Offset (Element Content) Paragraph 1 in Text Object5-Offset Paragraph 2 in Text Object5-Offset Paragraph 3 in Text Object5-Offset . .
