"TripAdvisor is a new type of search and directory service built
especially for the travel industry. Using patent pending technology,
TripAdvisor mines the wealth of the web for the most relevant and
personalized travel information on destinations and travel interests.
Compiling “the world’s opinion” within one website provides travel
consumers with the information they need to make informed
purchasing decisions." © 2000 TripAdvisor, Inc., all rights reserved.
The design challenge was to create a set of orderly layouts that would present
dynamically generated information.
We employed in addition to extensive use of Cascading Style Sheets for the formatting of the resulting output, XSL transformation templates for laying out the data, which is encoded in XML by the TripAdvisor search engine technology.
