Any books, article, newspaper, documents, and website are consisted from plain text. Also, plain text is widely used in Internet medium which can exist in all the components of websites, e-books, e-mails, and SMS.


Plain Text Code Algorithm Semantic Approach Watermark Extraction Syntactic Approach 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
