  • Patent number: 7987418
    Abstract: A method that enables automatic retrieval and transfer of bibliographical information whenever content is copied from a web page. During creation of a web page, the meta data defining each independent portion of the content is linked via paired comments or meta tags to bibliographical information associated with the content. When a person accesses the web site and copies the content from the site, the bibliographical information is automatically appended to the content. If that content is then pasted into a different document, e.g., within a word processing application, the bibliographical information is automatically transferred to a location for such information within the document. Also, if the content is saved, the bibliographical information is saved along with the content.

  • Patent number: 7725561
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and computer instructions for requesting a page from a server across a network data processing system. The page is requested a first time from a client application in the data processing system in which the page is requested using a domain name. An Internet Protocol address for the domain name is looked up for the page on a remote domain name server. The Internet Protocol address is used to request the page. The Internet Protocol address is stored locally in the data processing system in a database of Internet Protocol translations in association with the domain name for the page and wherein the database is accessible only by the client application. As a result, subsequent requests for the page may be processed using this database. The database of Internet Protocol translations is referenced to determine whether an Internet Protocol address for a selected page is present in response to a request for the selected page.

  • Patent number: 7290220
    Abstract: A method and system for non-sequential access to fields in a window, document, form or template. When the window, document, form or template is opened for user input, the user activates the non-sequential mode of operation, such as by hitting a particular keystroke or sequence of keystrokes. Once the non-sequential mode of operation is activated, indicia appear in each of the possible input fields. The indicia indicate to the user what they must do in order to immediately move the cursor to that field, to effectuate moving the window focus to the desired field.
