When browsing information on large Web sites, users often receive too much irrelevant information. The WWW Information Collection, Collaging, and Programming (Wiccap) system lets ordinary users build personalized Web views, which let them see only the information they want — and in the way they prefer. It provides a set of GUI tools, including a mapping wizard, extraction agent, and presentation toolkit, that hide the internal representation from ordinary users, but let experienced users create more advanced mapping rules. Wiccap encapsulates HTML- and language-specific details from the original Web site, facilitating the creation of personalized Web views for multilingual sites.
