The Headlines application enables stories or announcements to be posted on a web site or Intranet. This application can be used to deploy a "top story" for the day. Headlines are published according to pre-defined publish and remove dates and out of date headlines are stored in an archive that is searchable by the web visitor. The body of the headline provides font control through the use of standard control key combinations as well as cut and paste editing of text and graphics. In addition, one image can be added to the hyperlinked title on the main page providing a graphical "teaser" for the visitor.
