Workstations and Publication Systems presents key aspects at the leading edge of electronic publishing systems. These state of the art topics include Page Description and Graphics, Document Structures and Editing, Workstations and Human-Interface Aspects, and Languages and Implementations. Other issues covered are POSTSCRIPT and SGML related topics, personal publishing, multi-media documents, and theoretical models and paradigms. Office automation and associated hardware and software technologies are producing significant changes in traditional typing, printing, and publishing techniques and strategies. The long-term impact of current developments will be even more far-reaching as reducing hardware costs, improved HCI, uniformity through standardization, and sophisticated software facilities will all combine to provide systems of power, capability, and flexibility. This volume addresses many of the technical issues involved in this transition. The papers combine tutorial review and detailed examination of selected areas, and should enable most readers to derive maximum benefit from the volume. This book is important for all those concerned with the design, supply, or use of publishing systems; the hardware and software issues currently being addressed; publishers of books, magazines and newspapers; text processor suppliers and users; graphics systems designers and users; personal publishing; and all those involved with the design, use, and application of workstations.
