MTML2 Document Viewer 1.0, a freeware application from
and designed for Mac OS 7.6.1 through 9.1 (no plans for a Mac OS X version has been announced), is now available for
from the company’s Web site.
The new document viewer was created to give users of the MTML 2.0 Document Browser an application that they could give away with their information, according to Mark Brownell. It works by loading two documents that can be used at the same time. The first document is styled text formatted. The second document is a plain text version of the first document that also contains MTML2 markup.
So many types of information gathering can be created for users of the two document system. MTML2 can be used to create an index system that gathers, and displays each instance of an index word, or concept all at the same time, Brownell said.
Meaningful Text Markup Language makes it possible to structure documents so that an index would work for the user as a gathering and display tool that would be best used as a back end to a manual or book, Brownell explained. You can use it to partially structure HTML documents on the Internet.
“With MTML2 added to the HTML, it then makes browsing the HTML documents possible with the MTML2 browser,” Brownell said. “By the use of a construct library of tags of a specific group, text documents can be gathered in one place for the purpose of information mining of topical data, or ideas.”
