For instance, L/sup A/T/sub E/X converts a structured document to the T/sub E/X formatting hierarchy of boxes and glue. In other words, presentation is a mapping between trees. Casting it as a formal tree transformation offers both expressive, compact style specifications and efficient implementation. In our… CONTINUE READING
