Technical Implementation Issues
Contribute Electronic Delivery and Display Issues to DTD Design
- - Ensure that SGML DTD takes future HTML development into
consideration (style sheets).
- - Allow for current display and future implementations.
(sub and superscripts, tables, greek letters, math symbols)
- - DTD must allow on-the-fly SGML to HTML conversion.
Study and Outline Image Specifications for Electronic Display
- - Work with CUP personnel to standardize image scanning.
- - Determine transfer rate of different sized images
(varying dimension and resolution).
Install and Create Software Tools
- - Install public-domain and commercial software as need to
- - Be aware of software limitations (gopher text transfer size).
- - Write scripts/programs as needed for conversion, file modification.
(copyright insertion, carriage-return insertion, SGML-to-Medline,
mail-form cgi's, SGML-to-HTML conversion).
Create and Modify Web Pages
- - Create information pages to provide
general protein science information, EPS information, and
- - Maintain Web pages as technology/info changes.
- - Assist others in creation of homepages and preparing their EPS offering
for the Web site.
- - Markup other's work for mounting on server
Electronic Display Quality Control
- -Verify that all documents on the server are
HTML 2.0 compliant.
Place HTML 2.0 compliance icon on every page.
- - Verify that SGML articles parse with the EPS DTD (for indexing)
and that the on-the-fly HTML converted article is
HTML 2.0 compliant
Training Peers to Work in a Networked Environment
- - Use email and ftp to enable communication and electronic file
transfer of images and articles.
- - Provide information about computer networking to enable others to
rethink communication and their way of doing business.
- - Production work done at UCI is transferred to CUP personnel.
File directories are created and article and image files are placed
in appropriate locations.
- - CUP personnel to
verify article parsing
for SGML (for indexing) and HTML (for display) compliance.
- - HTML Markup training.
Basic Design Considerations
- - Continually research new technologies to added value to EPS.
- - How to keep scientific journal scholarly, yet interesting to younger
- - Design with little to no human intervention required.
