Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present the currently achieved results of our research goal: building an easy to use and powerful multimedia documents authoring environment, which provides high level of expressiveness and open document format. These results are concerned with both the time representation and the time management in our authoring system Madeus. In the first part of the paper, we describe the requirements that must be provided by a time representation of multimedia documents, the choice we made and a comparison with other existing approaches. In the second part, we describe the presentation layer of our system, and how it handles services such as dynamic formatting, temporal access control operations and hyperlinks.
