A computer-implemented method and system for of retrieving information. A first file of information is received which includes a first markup language to identify contents of the information. Responsive to the receiving the first file of information, the first file of information is parsed to generate a list of profiles, and at least one corresponding topic for each of the list of profiles. A second file in a second markup language is created containing the list of the profiles and at least one corresponding third file is created in a third markup language for the at least one corresponding topic for each of the list of profiles. The second file contains anchors referencing each at least one corresponding third file, and first markup instances in the first file of information are converted to second markup instances in either the second file or the third file. The first file of information is parsed to determine the at least one article, if any, for the each at least one corresponding topic for the each of the list of profiles, and a corresponding brief for the at least one article. A fourth file and a fifth file are generated for the at least one article, if any, for the each at least one corresponding topic for the each of the list of profiles. The fourth file includes a brief of each the at least one article in the first file of information and an anchor to the fifth file, the fifth file including text for the at least one article, if any, for the each at least one corresponding topic for the each of the list of profiles.
