<h3 class="indented">What &amp; why</h3>
<p class="indented">Docsum is a document summary tool. Say for instance you are researching a topic
and you have a several hundred pages per document you discover. Rather then reading
all the text, a summary would be nice to have to determine the relevant parts of the 
documents, as well as across documents. This is what docsum is intended to do. The
results of the search is will not be a list of links pointing to text in the relevant
information, docsum will produce a summary document with the information you need
based on your query. </p>

<h3 class="indented">How</h3>
<p class="indented">Docum is driven by Python and MySQL. The web end is basic HTML and PHP. Via the command
line (Python) or the web (PHP), the a user can generate summaries, post content, and
perform other administrative stuff. </p>

<h3 class="indented">Limits</h3>
<p class="indented">First off, docsum currently only handles plain text. Hopefully I
can find some libraries pre-made to read files such as PDF and MS Word files. This
tool should really be used for long documents you don't feel like reading, but you've
looked the document over enough to realize it is relavant.</p>
