Paper Abstract

The ability to accurately detect those areas in plain text documents that consist of contiguous text is an important pre- process to many applications. This paper introduces a novel method that uses both spatial and linguistic knowledge in an accurate manner to provide an initial analysis of the document. This initial analysis may then be extended to provide a complete analysis of the text areas in the document.
