We present the Active Documents Paradigm (ADP) to semantic publishing and management of mathematical knowledge together with the Planetary system as an active document player. Active Documents consist of semantically annotated documents associated with a content commons that holds corresponding background ontologies. The player application generates surface documents and instruments them with embedded semantic services that allow the user to directly interact with the annotated semantics. Thus the documents become windows for transparent interaction with the content commons.

The Planetary System integrates active document player functionality with direct editing facilities that allow users to contribute to the content commons, using a combination of technologies from the "Social Web" (Web2.0) with the Semantic Web - together called Web3.0. We will show planetary installations that contain document corpora at different levels of semantic annotation.
