Comtex to Provide XHTML Format From Business Wire

Comtex News Network, Inc. (, a provider of electronic real-time news, content, and market products, announced that news from Business Wire in XHTML format will soon be available to all its clients. XHTML (eXtensible HyperText Markup Language) is a format which retains the features and functionality of the original document while enhancing online search functions.

XHTML allows content providers to exercise more control regarding the look and feel of their press releases—issuers are to embed hyperlinks behind keywords, present wider earnings tables that include underlines, and include bullets and superscript notations. Dozens of major portals and websites worldwide have already embraced the XHTML format, including Yahoo Finance!, Google News, and Morningstar.

Adoption of these features can also improve search engine rankings of news releases. Appropriate hyperlinks and relevant formatting such as bolded keywords and bulleted highlights may enhance a release’s search engine optimization (SEO) and overall visibility throughout the internet.

With a specialization in the financial news and content marketplace, Comtex receives, enhances, combines, and filters news and content received from national and international news bureaus, agencies, and publications, and distributes more than 1 million stories per day.
