As so far, most of the information on the internet are designed for computer display, which can achieve the desired effect at 800*600 or higher resolution, but the normal TV’s resolution is much lower, so the web page looks abnormally on TV. Furthermore, it also can’t be browsed by phone and PDAs as PC does. Based on the analysis of the display principles of TV and computer, a new method which combines the following two methods together is proposed for the low resolution, thumbnail and relayout based on width adjustment. Web pages are divided into navigation page and content page. Thumbnail is corresponded to the former pages; the latter ones are adjusted through the format transformation with width adjustment algorithm. The web pages can be made more adaptive for TV.
