Reworking OHP: the Road to OHP-Nav

Reworking OHP: the Road to OHP-Nav
The original OHP specification was intended to define a simple but comprehensive ASCII protocol to deal with hypertext objects. However, this was too broad an issue to be addressed by a single protocol. Therefore, we have focused on navigational hypertext and produced a specification that is more powerful within this more specific domain. This paper describes the design of OHP-Nav, defined both in IDL as an interface and in XML as a tagged ASCII protocol. We believe that this reworked definition can form a basis for focusing on the real issues of interoperability in open hypermedia systems.

Abstract

The original OHP specification was intended to define a simple but comprehensive ASCII protocol to deal with hypertext objects. However, this was too broad an issue to be addressed by a single protocol. Therefore, we have focused on navigational hypertext and produced a specification that is more powerful within this more specific domain. This paper describes the design of OHP-Nav, defined both in IDL as an interface and in XML as a tagged ASCII protocol. We believe that this reworked definition can form a basis for focusing on the real issues of interoperability in open hypermedia systems.
