Electronic Publishing '92

Electronic publishing encompasses all aspects of computer-assisted document preparation, presentation, transmittance, storage, and retrieval. It is a very active area of study, involving developments in academic and industrial arenas, with important commercial applications and implications. The papers in this volume, which are all refereed and carefully edited, reflect not only such recent trends as hypermedia and multimedia documents, but also the classical and ever-present problems of document structure and font design.
