Title: DOCUMENT PREPARATION SYSTEMS
Authors: Witten, Ian H.
Keywords: Computer Science
Issue Date: 1-Feb-1981
Abstract: The use of computers for text layout is certainly one of their fastest growing application areas. Although the front office technology of word processors dominates the public eye, larger and more powerful document preparation systems are having a substantial impact on professional quality typesetting of books and journals. This paper identifies several problem areas for such systems, and reviews the capabilities and performance of three widely used ones. It concludes that a high degree of user programmability is the best way to cater for new tastes and new requirements, in conjunction with pre- and post-processors for specialized typesetting jobs.
