News Clipper allows web designers to automatically integrate dynamic information from the Internet into their own web pages. It allows individual users to create custom newspapers, or businesses to enliven otherwise static web pages. Its tag language gives users control of data acquisition, manipulation, and presentation, and can be extended by writing new "handlers".
