    I suppose everyone has his or her favourite acronym. Allow me to add to the
    collection by means of a sentence fragment taken from Marti Hearst, Gary
    Kopec and Dan Brotsky, "Research in Support of Digital Libraries at Xerox
    PARC. Part II", D-Lib, June 1996: "The Document Image Summarization
    (DIMSUM) activity...." There's an entire culture in that DIMSUM.
