This paper reports on work in progress on the generation of hypermedia (Web) presentations for the results of arbitrary queries to multimedia databases. In [Houben & De Bra 1997] we have proposed a heuristic algorithm for generating navigation structures for multimedia database output, based on ideas from RMM [see Isakowitz et al. 1995]. We have shown that only part of the RMM design methodology can be automated deterministically, and have provided both heuristics and a way to override them through additional specifications in a database query. This paper describes our approach to automatically generate a presentation for multimedia database output, in addition to the generation of navigation for such output described in [Houben & De Bra 1997].
