Title: A METHOD AND SOFTWARE ELEMENT FOR ADAPTATION OF INFORMATION
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a method for obtaining user-suited real-time information about a specific object (11) in a network (A) such as the Internet or an Intranet. Starting from an optional home page (B) comprising general information (12) about the object (11) a user (1) can mark a feature (13) in said general information. The user then activates a search function (22) which utilises this feature (13) to seek information concerning the object in a database (21). If information concerning the object is to be found in the database, an adapting function (23) presents information concerning the object to the user, which information constitutes the user-suited information. The present invention also relates to a number of different software elements that co-operate to offer a practical realisation of the method in accordance with the invention.
