A technique for labeling of components in document images is also proposed. A procedure for classifying and ranking is also proposed. The experiments are conducted on the MediaTeam document image database that provides diverse collection of document images.</ABSTRACT><URL>http://www.springerlink.com/content/r2011n386l5205p4/</URL></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
