SGML-AWARE SOFTWARE: LECTOR

Robin C. Cover
Apropos of discussions on "SGML-aware" software, the "Lector"
application developed at the University of Waterloo may be of
interest to TEI-L readers.  It shows how descriptively marked-up
text and electronic stylesheets can be used interactively to
generate multiple text views, etc.  The bibliographic reference
and abstract are provided below.

Raymond, Darrell R.  Lector - An Interactive Formatter for Tagged
     Text.  Technical Report OED-90-02.  University of Waterloo
     Centre for the New Oxford English Dictionary and Text
     Research, August, 1990.  26 pages (13 figs.)

ABSTRACT: Lector is an X.11 aplication that provides highly
interactive text formatting.  Unlike text previewers, Lector
handles descriptively marked-up text, supports multiple styles,
and interacts well with other programs, including other
invocations of Lector.  Appropriate selection of texts and styles
enables Lector to act as a text previewer, database browser, code
prettyprinter, menu utility, and iconic interface.  Lector's
implementation revolves around a set of tradeoffs involving
efficiency, simplicity and generality.  The result demonstrates
the utility of generalized text display tools.

VERONIS
Is there any way that one can get an electronic address for Darrell Raymond,
and ultimately, an electronic description (with price and order form) of
LECTOR?

Thanks.
