OK, I'll bite. Let's say that a user can go to an options page to customize the look and feel of an application or page. Make the background this color and font that color, etc. This information could be stored in cookies or related to a user (that has accessed the site through a standard login page) via a database. Does this help at all?

Hi,
Sorry ranchers!! Was rushing through a meeting thus gave an in adequate spec...
The need is
1) The End user customizes the pages according to his/her needs like
the user preferred sections like editorial,International Business section of a news paper site say..
2) Ofcourse the colors .. and the interface layout depending on the user's prefernce

WE thought of saving the user preferneces in the database and when ever hte user logs in we wanted to pull out the data and modigy the presentation logic...
Please make me rich with ideas...
Cheers,
Gaya3

Save as XML. This will be easy to create, read , debug etc..
Create modular structures using XML
eg:
<APP_USER_GUI_PREF>
<SCREEN1>
<PARAM1>ON</PARAM1>
</SCREEN1>
</APP_USER_GUI_PREF>
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
