Session: Re-Use

In the course of a Web development project for the Museum für Völkerkunde in Vienna, ViEx, a reuse framework supporting authoring and managing hypermedia exhibitions, has been developed. The framework consists of three major components: a relational content database, a corresponding browser based editing interface, and a Web page generator which creates the final Web exhibition. Strict separation of content, structure and layout information promises ease of maintenance, especially in the context of multiple versions of the same exhibition to cope with different presentation languages and client platform dependencies.
