Software that enhances the appearance of text for human readability. Converting mathematical equations that appear on one line with single character symbols into their formal graphical appearance is an example. Source code beautifiers are another example (see code beautifier).

The generation process is controlled by the definition of a programming language, which may include such features as syntax definition/checking, type checking, prettyprinting, and semantics of programs.
At first glance, it may seem we are talking only about "prettyprinting," but our approach goes significantly beyond prettyprinting in several ways:
We realized that rich typographic representations with many degrees of freedom allows source code presentation qualitatively different from that of conventional prettyprinting.
WEAVE's output is handed to a document formatter, which is assumed to implement a prettyprinting algorithm like that described by Oppen [4].

Since there are usually many different tokens having the same category, prettyprinting is simplified enormously.
