Abstract

Paper is still preferred to digital document systems for tasks involving annotating, folding, juxtaposing, or otherwise treating the document as a tactile object. Based on the Multivalent Documents model, Multivalent annotations bring to digital documents of potentially any source format, from PostScript to SGML, an open ended variety of user-extensible, sharable manipulations. Several very different forms of distributed annotation based on this model have been implemented. The Multivalent framework composes together annotations of any type, which can result in novel, useful combinations.
