Add Proposed Abstract

  = Corinthia Podling Proposal =
  == Abstract ==
- ## Abstract - much needed!
+ Corinthia converts among document file formats via transformation through an HTML-grounded
intermediary.  The selection of document file formats is expandable by addition of import
and export plugins.  
+ Editing in Corinthia is via a responsive editor, implemented in JavaScript and HTML (CSS),
that works on the web, in the cloud, and also adapts across device form factors for practical
use on mobile devices, tablets, and touch-enabled as well as keyboard-oriented interfaces.
 Corinthia document viewing and editing is on the intermediate form, limited to common, widely-supported
features. Corinthia is not a comprehensive substitute for format-specific authoring, editing,
and final-form printing/production software.
+ To avoid irreversible loss of features from imported documents, Corinthia encapsulates unsupported
feature occurrences in a form that can be recovered from the intermediate as part of subsequent
export to the same or different format.
+ Identification and confirmation of inter-convertible features of different formats for dependable
import and export involves development of extensive test documents in the different formats.
 There is profiling of the extent to which standardized formats are supported in practice,
with identification of deviations and implementation-dependent choices that impact convertibility.
+ All of the Corinthia test cases, profiling, plugin development, libraries, and utilities
are reusable resources to other projects.  All development of source-code for binaries is
in portable C Language for multi-platform compilation as well as API "wrapping" for delivery
to other programming models, such as for Python, .NET, Java, and Node.js.  Document format
file import and export plugins may be adaptable as import-export extensions used with other
document-processing software.
