A simple content-analysis program incorporated in a word-processing system can display the most significant sentence of a page of text and give a short list of the more important words. This could help authors write titles, summaries, and descriptor lists. The contentanalysis program relies on word frequency, precedence, and co-occurrence as indicators of content significance. Test show it performs at least as well as some trained indexers.
