HTML Output - dynamic, linked, mobile

The linking of distributed information via hyperlinks is the constituent element of the HyperText Markup Language HTML. The format thus goes beyond the previously binding DIN A4 grid-based content unit of the document. In contrast, the PDF format is based on the formatted DIN A4 page, which should be displayed or printed as identically as possible on any device.

Responsive design for flexible and mobile display

If mobile media such as tablets or smartphones are to be used, HTML offers the best conditions for a user-friendly display:

  • No horizontal scrolling by adapting the text and display width to the screen size or to portrait and landscape format
  • Consideration of screen resolution, set font size, etc. in the display

Responsive design "responds" to the characteristics of the output device and adapts by reformatting text or adjusting graphics and images.

Dynamic documents

The M/ series HTML renderer creates dynamic, non-page-based HTML that preserves markup and metadata. On this basis, responsive design can be implemented that reacts to the characteristics of the output device and reformats the page appropriately. See above.

In combination with a corresponding CSS stylesheet, dynamic documents can also be generated from this HTML output, for example

  • detailed information can be shown and hidden,
  • the focus can be placed on specific people or topics,
  • or you can choose between different display styles of graphics (bar chart vs. pie chart) etc.
