You can design and format your result pages using all of the many layout and programming techniques available in SharePoint. Ontolica features are added by placing Ontolica Web Parts on the page. You can arrange and format these any way that you want and add any number of other visual and programmed elements.
The content and layout of nearly all Ontolica Web Parts is controlled by an XSLT template, which converts the standard XML emitted by the Web Part into standard HTML, ready to be displayed on the page. You can select from among several different standard templates for each Web Part and even design your own as needed.
The standard Ontolica XSLT templates also incorporate support for a CSS style sheet, which controls graphical aspects such as fonts, table formats, background colors, paragraph styles, etc.
