Summary (Abstract)

The paper views a document as an XML tree and presents a model for formatting an ongoing document. The Document Description Framework (which separates data and presentation) is the basis for the paper.

Theoretical and Practical Relevance

Documents may not be static. Examples given include medical records and diaries (e.g. blogs). Engineers need ways of publishing continual documents.
