An automatic document segmentation and presentation systems (DSPS) is discussed. Small displays, which are device that display a small amount of information for comfortable user viewing, because either the screens are physically small or they have very low resolution, are also discussed. Small displays increase the burden on Web page authors and application designers because they consider all possible display capabilities of user devices when creating a Web page. The DSPS divides a Web document into different logical segments on the basis of the device's display size and the document's hierarchical structure and content. It also extract the summary and overview information from the logical segments to help users locate relevant information.
