as a tree which specifies the presentation in an abstract, machineindependent way. This specification is created and edited using an authoring system; it is mapped to a particular platform by a viewing system. In our current implementation, CMIFed performs both In this paper we discuss the architecture and implementation of CMIFed, an editing and presentation environment for hypermedia documents.
