4.3. Advanced BIFS Features

In this section, some advanced BIFS features are presented.[9] The first feature, scripting, is introduced through an example in which the Script node is used to achieve complex interaction and create a panorama. Next, data encapsulation and model reuse with PROTO are presented. Finally, a way to deal with the unpredictability of text layout by using the Layout and Form nodes is explained.

This should not be confused with the somewhat arbitrary usage of the term “advanced” in the standard.
