Stateless online web page editing system and method


A system and a method of editing Web page online wherein the original web page is converted into block version web page by creating a server based application which breaks HTML into functional nested blocks and delivers a web based interface to add/delete/modify/reorder those blocks. A server based application reads in an HTML page to be edited and breaks it down into HTML blocks, which may be converted into an HTML editing form by putting annotations around each block allowing the user to choose an operation to apply to that block such as edit or delete. A "stateless" web page editing system and method is provided such that a user can edit a web page independently of dependence on, or connection to, the server from which the page was obtained and in which the page resides.
