The desktop conferencing system described here is called WISH (for Web Information SHare) and enables users to conduct a conference on the Internet. Users can participate in the conference by using WWW browsers and can share HTML documents with all participants in realtime. When one participant accesses WWW pages and browses them, the same pages are automatically displayed on all other participants' browsers. Participants can also annotate directly on the pages and share the annotations in realtime
