Applying Open Hypertext Principles to the WWW.
Proceedings of the International Workshop on Hypermedia Design '95, Montpelier, France.
The concept of an open hypertext environment is now accepted as the best way to provide a flexible and extensible approach to the provision of hypertext functionality. Although very popular, the World Wide Web system created at CERN in Switzerland is a closed system, and suffers a number of drawbacks as a result. This paper describes how an open hypertext approach may benefit users and authors of World Wide Web material, and illustrates how the World Wide Web may be extended to provide a more open hypertext model.
