Abstract

An apparent limitation of existing Web pages is their inability to accommodate differences in the interests and needs of individual users. The present paper describes an approach that dynamically customises the content of public Web-based information via an interceding ‘enhancement server’. The design and operation of this system is described with examples drawn from two current versions. Indications from early trials support the view that this approach affords considerable scope for accommodating the needs and interests of individual Web users.
