MEDIA DESIGN IN*PROGRESS RELEASES INTERACTION 2.0:
DYNAMIC ADAPTIVE WEBSITES WITH SERVER-SIDE XML

San Diego, CA, April 27, 1998: Media Design in*Progress releases the 2.0
version of Interaction, the web server companion for dynamic social
websites that adapts to the visitor. Interaction is the first application
to take advantage of server-side XML 1.0 for dynamic websites. The software
works with Mac OS Web servers, generating HTML on the fly from XML
documents. An evaluation copy can be downloaded from
(http://interaction.in-progress.com).

Interaction allows professional webmasters to benefit from the efficiency
and flexibility of extensible markup for developing and maintaining today’s
websites. The application provides wizards to create, inspect and modify
extensible markup, liberating the author from detailed knowledge of the XML
specification. Using Interaction, webmasters and authors can create and use
their own custom XML elements (tags), XML entities (includes) and
specialized XML document types (markup languages) when constructing the
websites.

Interaction generates HTML pages at serving time from XML documents, based
on the processing rules of a style sheet and the context of the request.
The result is websites that adapt to each visitor without requiring
scripting, programming or proprietary “command tag” constructs. The
integrated Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) editor simplifies designing and
maintaining a consistent presentation of the website. Interaction can
optionally emulate CSS to keep the sites accessible and appealing for those
using older browsers.

PRICING AND INFORMATION
Interaction 2.0 is priced at $795, and ships on CD-ROM with printed
documentation, telephone- and priority email support, and many components
included web based forums, chat rooms, and shopping carts. Personal
licenses are priced at $245, and include the on-line distribution with
up-and-running support. Upgrades to version 2.0 are free for registered
users of Interaction. Customer contact: +1(619)437-0664;

ABOUT XML
Extensible Markup Lanugage (XML) is a vendor-independent format for
structured content on the Web, created and developed by the World Wide Web
Consortium (W3C). XML provides a professional alternative to proprietary
server-side markup constructs for developing websites. A press release
announcing XML 1.0 is found at (http://www.w3.org/Press/1998/XML10-REC).
