This book contains a set of papers taken from the 3rd International Conference on Computers and Writing, representing the most comprehensive survey of the application of computers to writing to date. Given that it has a broad range of topics, the book will appeal to a wide audience, including researchers, both academic and commercial, interested in theoretical and applied issues related to computers and writing.

The relationship between computers and writing has, over the last few years, taken on a new significance. Not only do computers provide help in conventional writing tasks, they provide new ways of writing, through networking, electronic publishing, and hypertext. The machine may even begin to write itself. As well as researchers, the audience for this book includes teachers and trainees of writers and documenters, technical writers, primary and secondary school teachers. Indeed, anyone with an interest in writing and the writing process.
