Title: Method and apparatus for generating user profile reports using a content menu

Abstract: A menu authoring system is disclosed that enables developers to tag menu entries and track end-user selections. The authoring system is based on the prior art of the open hierarchical data structure to generate a content menu. The prior structure manages a network of menu paths that intersect and overlap, enabling multiple paths to reach the same destination. Developers employ this prior art to create different menu paths to serve different types of end users. Advances brought about by the present invention enable[s] the developer to identify different types of end-user groups, collect data, and analyze it over time.
