Abstract

A method is described which permits a section in an online presentation document that is too large to fit into the available memory of the host machine to be divided into two or more sections and not be apparent to the audience. The Online Presentation Control Language (OPCL) is a programming language designed to create stand-alone online presentations. An information developer, typically a non-programmer, uses the OPCL's commands to specify document structure, displayable text, sounds, animation, and other parts of the presentation. The Online Presentation Development System (OPDS) is a group of programs designed to create stand-alone online presentations. Online presentations include such items as product demonstrations, tutorials, and other programs in which the computer is used to present information.
