summary An experience from the process of adding logical markup to visually tagged scanned data is presented. Method of gradual markup enhancement is outlined. Methods of navigation in a large hypertext document based on typesetting from logical markup are suggested -- physical, logical and semantic user views. Their application to a 29,000 page digitization project to create an electronic encyclopaedia is described. Problems faced in applying Adobe's Acrobat technology for encyclopaedia publishing are discussed.
