Session Description: Tables, list and other structural elements are found in many digital articles. These elements typically allow the authors to present information in a structured manner and to communicate and summarize key results and main facts. It allows readers to get a quick overview of the presented information, to compare items and put them into context. Knowing the physical boundaries of paragraphs can aid screen-readers for visually impaired users. Having a concept of tables will help any document-processing flow. And, aside from serving as pure input, structure is a key component when performing conversion. This talk is about bridging the gap between high-level concepts and low-level document formats.
