Due to the increasing use of information an the WWW by different sorts of device types, content providers have to solve the problem, how to present the fitting contents both effectively and taking into account the needs of the device type. The XML-language-family offers the possibility to present the same contents an different device types, but problems may arise if a document is too extensive for the representation an a certain device. The XML-language-family offers no possibility to split up large documents according to the size of the display and to connect the arising parts. Therefore, the NEC cooperation has submitted a proposal for the development of a XML Document Navigation Language (XDNL) to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). This publication assesses and classifies the possibilities and problems of the XML Document Navigation Language and, by use of a case study, demonstrates how it works.
