Hyper Text & Hyper Media

Academic Press Professional, Harcourt Brace & Company Publishers (Boston/San Diego/New York) 1993, English text 278 pp.

This book is based on many examples of hypertext in both the form of systems and applications there are now so many diferent approaches to hypertext that it would be wrong to base a book on a single one. It is important to realize that hypertext is such a broad concept that one hypertext system might well be completely unsuited to a particular application even though the application could be well supported by another hypertext system. Therefore this book aims at providing you with an idea of the multitude of hypertext, so that you will be better able to decide for yourself whether your needs can be served by hypertext and what requirements should be fulfilled to serve these needs well.
