Title (EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM USING TEXT OR GRAPHIC TOKENS TO PROVIDE LINKS BETWEEN AND WITHIN DOCUMENTS
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE UTILISANT DES JETONS TEXTES OU GRAPHIQUES POUR CREER DES LIENS ENTRE DOCUMENTS ET A L'INTERIEUR DE DOCUMENTS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method and system for managing digital documents by using links to allow navigation between documents (900, 902) and to create associations based on bridges (908) between various combinations of document elements and software. Each bridge includes at least one coupling (910). Each coupling includes a target token identifier (912) and a supplementary token identifier (914) which allow software users to navigate between target and supplementary documents or to invoke supplementary software routines. Linked elements, such as text or graphic tokens, can overlap partially or entirely. Embedded links are allowed, but are not required.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé et un système permettant de gérer des documents numériques à l'aide de liens, pour assurer la navigation entre des documents (900, 902), et pour créer des associations reposant sur des ponts (908) entre les diverses combinaisons d'éléments de documents et le logiciel. Chaque pont comprend au moins un couplage (910). Chaque couplage comprend un identificateur de jeton cible (912) et un identificateur (914) de jeton supplémentaire, qui permettent aux utilisateurs du logiciel de naviguer entre les documents cibles et les documents supplémentaires ou d'appeler d'autres programmes de logiciels. Les éléments liés, comme les jetons textes ou graphiques, peuvent se chevaucher partiellement ou totalement. Les liens incorporés sont autorisés mais ne sont pas nécessaires.
