 http://www.emsl.pnl.gov:2080/proj/publisher/publisher.html
 The EMSL Publisher (c) 1997-1998 is a new software product developed to
 aid
 the process of writing scientific reports and journal articles. This
 document
 processing application is written entirely using the Java1.1 language,
 and as
 such will run on all supporting platforms (currently including Win95,
 WinNT, MacOS, and many UNIX flavors).
 In addition to offering the user the standard word processing features,
 the
 software also offers :
 *      Embeddable Java Applets and JavaBeans
        This allows any Java code to be embedded within the document,
 code
        such as molecular editors, graphs, charts, equations etc... The
        demonstration version includes an example 3D Molecular Viewer,
 which
        allows 'live' 3D models to be placed into the document.
 *      Distributed Document Server
        The user has the option to save and load his document to and from
 either
        the local disk or to a remote document server. This enables
 multiple
        authors to jointly write papers even if they are physically
 separate
        form each other and/or using different platforms.
 *      Citations Database
        Built into the full release version of the software is a complete
        citations database, allowing references to be placed within
 documents,
        and then automatically formatted and numbered as required.
 *      Automatic Journal Styling
        Papers can be written and then automatically styled for the
 destination
        journal. i.e., style for an JACS submission, and then with one
 click,
        re-style the whole document (references includes) for a J. Chem.
 Soc.
        submission.
 *      Platform Independence
        The Publisher itself will run on any Java1.1 enabled machine. In
        addition, its documents are fully portable.
 *      Chemical Formulae Styling
        Type in a chemical formula in plain text, have the software
 automatically
        superscript or subscript the numbers, and place 'proper' arrows
 where
        needed.
 We have just released a demonstration version of the Publisher Lite,
 showcasing the basic features of the software, and are anticipating a
 full
 featured release during the forthcoming summer.
 We'd be grateful if you would take a look at the web site, which details
 the
 project, download and test the software and pass on your valuable
 comments
 and suggestions.
