Title: Computer system and method for customizing context information sent with document fragments across a computer network

Abstract: The ability to provide certain text in most, if not all, of the documents sent over the network by a server is provided by a mechanism which combines context information with a document, or document fragment, to be sent. The context information can be made dependent on the document type and defined by the style sheet. In particular, it may be defined by the style definition for a header or footer style for the particular document type. Such feature is particularly useful for generating copyright notices, button bars, or other text to be included in most or all document fragments sent over the network. The context information is defined by a declarative specification that operates on document structure which reduces document management effort.
