    SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 17 /PRNewswire/ --
 Inxight(R) Software Inc., the leading provider of unstructured data management
 software used to analyze, organize and navigate Internet and enterprise
 content, today announced a licensing partnership with COMTEX News Network,
 Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:   CMTX). The agreement enables COMTEX customers to
 find, index and display information faster, more efficiently and with greater
 accuracy.
     COMTEX is the leading business-to-business infomediary that provides
 real-time global news and information to resellers on the Internet, Wall
 Street and corporate markets. COMTEX has licensed Inxight's Categorizer(TM),
 Thing Finder(TM) and Summarizer(TM) engines to filter news content to more
 than 1,100 customers worldwide, with a reach of millions of end users.
     "Inxight's software solutions are an excellent complement to our
 proprietary content aggregation and delivery platform," said Slawek Ligier,
 Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for COMTEX. "The variety and
 flexibility of their applications allow us to efficiently serve our diverse
 customer base."
     "Inxight is pleased to collaborate with one of the leaders in news content
 delivery," said Ian Hersey, Inxight's vice president of linguistic products.
 "Our categorization, indexing and summarization capabilities will give COMTEX
 the ability to deliver a suite of linguistic tools to deliver accurate news
 content to their millions of readers and viewers."
 
     Categorizer
     Categorizer is an application that efficiently and automatically
 classifies unstructured data, such as web pages, e-mail, word processing
 documents, presentations, PDF and text, into pre-defined categories to
 significantly improve and add value to information found on portals and
 corporate knowledge libraries. Categorizer uses patented advanced language and
 pattern matching technologies that take classification beyond simple methods
 such as rule-based systems and pure pattern recognition techniques.
 Categorizer advances its technology by combining linguistic processing engines
 with patented mathematics algorithms.
 
     Thing Finder
     Thing Finder SDK is a powerful content indexing software developer's kit
 that identifies and extracts entities such as people, places and things within
 unstructured text. Using Inxight's powerful linguistic technology, Thing
 Finder tags and highlights the identified entities in context and then
 classifies them in 25 pre-defined categories. Additional categories can be
 easily added for customization (e.g. financial, medical or legal terms.)
 
     Summarizer
     Summarizer creates abstracts of online documents in a fraction of a
 second. With these abstracts, users can preview documents before reading or
 downloading them, and quickly find the information most important to them.
 Summarizer can be trained to look for elements such as sentence location,
 length, thematic words and proper names within a document. Industries such as
 financial, pharmaceutical, legal and other vertical markets can customize
 summaries to suit their individual needs.
 
     Inxight Categorizer, Thing Finder and Summarizer are available directly
 from Inxight by calling 877-INXIGHT (469-4448). Product information and online
 demonstrations are available at http://www.inxight.com .
