Carlos - the thing your are referring to is a OCR and Policy standard 
for how content is recognized and then converted to Long-Term Storage so 
lets look at that process

     1)    Photographic capture of a paper document and the separation 
of the document into its discrete components including the attachments.

     2)    OCR practice to identify all of the key content areas on the 
document and its formatting or workflow. This has two key issues and 
they are Reading-Flow Order (i.e right to left, left to right, top to 
bottom etc) and Actual Content Recognition.

     3)    Once the content recognition is completed then the content 
can be re-encapsulated into a containment which is XML or whatever in 
form.  This is a POLICY DRIVEN encapsulation to deal with a) text 
objects, and b) graphical or other digital content objects or attachments

     4)    The LTANS encapsulation (the document induction process) can 
now start...

Does this help?
