Technique behind this E-Journal

The original paper edition of journal is typeset by using PageMaker on Windows. We save all files as HTML and PDF in PageMaker.

In this project, we use XML technology to create the metadata information of journal, issues and all articles. The creation procedure is done semi-automatically - use simple C program and perl script to extract information from HTML file, and create draft metadata in XML format. And then check the draft by hand in IE 5.0 and fix error in it.

With metadata, we use IBM XML4J, LotusXSL and perl script to create all different views of index, i.e. "Issue Index View", "Author Index View", "Keyword Index View", and "Article Basic Information View". We also use "tidy" program to up the original HTML file, and then use perl script to add "Dublin Core" Catalog Information in the header of HTML file.
