Title: Effective transmission of documents in hypertext markup language (HTML)

Abstract: A data processor controlled display system for displaying documents including natural language text representative of data transmitted in a markup language such as HTML to a display station from a location remote from said station. The HTML tags are tokenized prior to transmission, comments are removed from the HTML file prior to transmission and the file is then subjected to a conventional general text compression. After the HTML file is received at the display station, it is decompressed, detokenized and the resulting HTML file is used to create a document or page on the display.
