Finally I am back again. Some people stated once, that the
Symbolics Document Examiner was in some way superior to HTML and
common implementation of Web Browsers. So my question is: What are
All I know about the Document Examiner is that it looks great (I saw
it once) and what Nielsen wrote about it .
Additionally to the usual user interface of common Web browsers, I
am about to implement:
- The Document Examiner's "bookmark lists". Not to be confused with
Web browser's bookmarks list. Nielsen calls this "shopping lists",
which is also a bad name in the Web context, since real shopping
via WWW is expected to become common.
- Local search over a whole or multiple documents.
So what is missing to make HTML suitable for documentation?
