Formalizing and Querying Heterogeneous Documents with Tables
This paper explores the application and extension of XML technology for formalizing and querying heterogeneous documents containing text and tables. Specifically, it analyzes the pros and the cons of embedding the formalization into the original document to obtain an XML Master document that improves traceability while enabling making explicit interpretation of tables separately, in a modular fashion. This work is relevant for formalizing, representing, and manipulating (domain-specific) content in legacy semi-structured documents, and for authoring new documents with tables that should be simultaneously human readable and machine processable.
