Verity makes a plug-in that works as a file translator

Verity Inc. has developed a client package through which PC users can exchange and
review files without having the native applications installed. The company also has a
server product that can convert proprietary documents for viewing by Web browser.

The $65 KeyView Pro 6.5 handles 225 application formats including Applixware Office,
Corel WordPerfect Suite 8, Lotus SmartSuite 97 and Millenium Edition, and Microsoft Office
95, 97 and 2000. Users also can view and manage Iomega Zip files.

KeyView Pro works as a plug-in for Netscape Navigator and as an ActiveX document object
in Microsoft Internet Explorer. It comes with an Adobe Acrobat reader for Portable
Document Format files.

With Verity’s $10,000 HTML Export 2.0, users can post documents on Web sites
without knowing how to program in Hypertext Markup Language. They can generate HTML files
directly from the native file formats for intranet access by browser.

Version 2.0 has a Microsoft Component Object Model interface for Java and Visual Basic
programmers. It supports cascading style sheets and preserves characteristics such as
fonts, graphics and tables. Users can segment documents, presentations and spreadsheets
into multiple linked Web pages with navigational links.

The two products run on Microsoft Windows 9x and Windows NT platforms. HTML Export 2.0
also runs on Macintosh PowerPC and Unix systems.

The National Science Foundation uses products from Verity of Sunnyvale, Calif.
