Image Number 9 for United States Patent #7739588.
Markup language data applied to text or data is leveraged for providing helpful actions on certain types of text or data such as names, addresses, etc. Selected portions of text or data entered into a document and any associated markup language data are passed to an action dynamically linked library (DLL) for obtaining actions associated with markup language elements applied to the text or data. The text or data may be passed to a recognizer DLL for recognition of certain data types. The recognizer DLL utilizes markup language data associated with the text or data to assist recognition and labeling of text or data. After all applicable text and/or data is recognized and labeled, an action DLL is called for actions associated with the labeled text or data.
