Title: Adaptive textual system for associating descriptive text with varying data

Abstract: An interpretive text system implemented in a host computer system. The host computer system, which may include multiple computers coupled together, includes one or more processors, memory, a fixed disk storage device and an interface to a communication link. The communications link provides a communication medium by which users can access the host computer from remote locations. The host computer includes interpretive text logic, which preferably is implemented in software running on the processor(s), that automatically generates a textual explanation of a set of variable data in response to user input. For example, the user may wish to see an explanation of a set of financial technical data regarding a particular security. The interpretive text logic automatically customizes a textual explanation for that particular security and provides the explanation to the user.
