This paper reports on considerations about the common basic functions and components for building a collaborative authoring environment. We aim to specify and systematize the technological issues towards the future standardization [5, 16] of such environments, based on our previous research experiences. Standardization includes many difficult aspects, however it will extend and widen the field of applications possible within the collaborative and cooperative authoring paradigm, and will enable the usage of the fruits of years of research and individual implementations of the concept of collaborative, but mostly, cooperative authoring. In this paper, we try to set a systematic basis of a common platform for collaborative authoring.
