MEDIA DESIGN IN*PROGRESS SHIPS INTERACTION 2.1 WITH SMIL

SAN DIEGO, CA, SEPTEMBER 29, 1998: Media Design in*Progress today shipped
Interaction 2.1, the Mac web server companion for dynamic social websites
that adapt to the visitor. The new release facilitates maintaining multiple
websites on one server, supports authoring synchronized multimedia
presentations using SMIL markup, and allows back-end CGI applications to
benefit from Interaction's XML processing. Interaction 2.1 is available
from:

  http://interaction.in-progress.com

Interaction 2.1 facilitates markup of SMIL content. SMIL (Synchronized
Multimedia Integration Language) is the new W3C standard for web based
multimedia presentations. Interaction provides wizards to author SMIL
markup, automatically generated from the SMIL Document Type Definition
(DTD). Using SMIL a website can provide for example rich newscasts or
audio-visual educational lessons on the web.

Interaction generates HTML pages at serving time from XML content, 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 2.1 is priced at $795, and ships on CD-ROM with printed
documentation, telephone- and priority email support, and many
complementary components including 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. The PRO license for
Interaction allows an unlimited number of websites on one computer.
Personal licenses are limited to three sites. Upgrades to Interaction 2.1
