Web portals offer many services and wealth of content
to Web users. However, most users do not find interest in
all the content present in these sites. Most of them visit
some specific sites and browse in specific thematic areas of
them. In this paper, a software technique is presented that
allows the viewers of web sites to build their own
personalized portals, using specific thematic areas of their
preferred sites. This transcoding technique is based on an
algorithm, which fragments a web page in discrete
fragments using the page’s internal structure. A training
and update procedure is used for identifying the different
instances of thematic areas in different time points.
