The Texttiles browser is a prototype of a rich-prospect browser. Rich-prospect browsing principles consist
of providing a persistent display of all items in a collection and controls to manipulate the display, and organization of those
items (Ruecker 2004). These principles have been evaluated in previous studies in order to identify different sorts of pills
(Given et al. 2007), and conference delegates (Ruecker et al. 2006). With the Texttiles browser we attempt to translate
those principles to collections that consist mainly of textual information. We also aim to provide more comprehensive controls
on the display of such information.
