Subject [greenstone-users] pdf collection (image preview)
Hello, I want to create a collection from scanned PDFs that have been
OCRed (thus searchable)

phase 1:
I want it so when you search, it will show pages from the pdfs in
image format. So if you search for a word, when you click to look at
the document, the "text view" shows text next to the page, thus you
can see complicated documents that might be hard to see otherwise.

phase 2:
It would be great it the words could be highlighted (since pdf has the
knowledge of where the words are located in the first place). It
would be great if this could be done with CSS or SVG or some other
client side tool so that the rendered page gets sent, and locations to
"mark it up".

Anyone do anything like this?
