A client-server system for making electronically published documents available over a computer network processes electronically published documents in a first markup language into document in a second markup language using a mapping table. A client viewer can request a portion of the electronically published document and the server sends only the selected portion, converted to the second markup language. If the selected portion is too big, the server can send a summary review such as a table of contents and description of the selected document.
