This paper presents the Web version of the philological workstation BAMBI (Better Access to Manuscript and Browsing of Images) and its design. The BAMBI Web workstation allows historians, and more particularly philologists, to work on manuscripts (transcription, annotations, indexing, etc.) alongside the Internet network. Our approach for the Web implementation of the philological workstation is based on the reuse of the local BAMBI software. We have used the formalism of UML (Unified Modelling Language) for the distributed software design, and especially the concepts based on the diagrams of collaboration. The implementation is based on the ActiveX approach.
