Snippets are used by almost every text search engine to complement ranking schemes in order to effectively handle user keyword search. Despite the fact that XML is a standard representation format of web data, research on generating result snippets for XML search remains untouched. In this work, we present eXtract, a system that efficiently generates self-contained result snippets within a given size bound which effectively summarize the query results and differentiate them from one another, according to which users can quickly assess the relevance of the query results.
