Abstract

See full text

A design and layout tool defines regions within an electronic publication and provides instructions to a viewer for obtaining and formatting information to be displayed by the viewer within each region. The viewer may execute on a client computer system connected to a computer network. The viewer obtains information, pursuant to the instructions, from one or more server computer systems that are also connected to the computer network and displays the information to a user. The viewer is also responsive to user interactions and timer events to obtain and display the information. The design and layout tool may also generate secure font file names for the fonts associated with the information to be displayed by the viewer.
