non-linear writing where you can click to explore
A term used in reference to text or documents that contain highlighted words or phrases, which link to other related pages of information. The highlighted links usually appear in a different color than the adjacent text material, typically blue, and are sometimes underlined. The links are called hyperlinks. Readers may jump from one document to another in non-linear fashion by clicking on these hyperlinks. The hypertext documents need not be arranged in any particular sequence or location. Further, the hypertext need not be read in an orderly, linear fashion. Instead, it may be browsed in a random fashion simply by following the hyperlinks. The World Wide Web Is constructed on hypertext. It uses HTML and HTTP to link together millions of individual pages. Text on one web page links to another, and most sites link to others. The primary method of travel on the WWW involves the use of hyperlinks. (Because the Web combines graphics, audio, video, and text, it is more accurately termed a hypermedia system.)

A broad definition is that hypertext is "the use of the computer to transcend the linear, bounded, and fixed qualities of the traditional written text" ( Landow and Delaney, 1991). It is textual information, usually on the Internet, CD-ROM, or other computer or database system that is connected through a series of 'links' often in a nonlinear fashion. Hypertext is a form of hypermedia. Hypermedia topics are linked in a manner that allows the user to jump from subject to related subject in searching for information. For example, a hypermedia presentation on navigation might include links to such topics as astronomy, bird migration, geography, satellites, and radar. If the information is primarily in text form, the document or file is called hypertext. If video, music, animation, or other elements are included, the document is called a hypermedia document. ("Hypermedia." Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 2001. © 1993-2000 Microsoft Corporation.)
A hypertext document is any document that contains links or pointers to other documents. No specific hierarchy or organization is implied. The collection of multiplly interconnected documents is called a "web" (rather than a "linear list," "tree," or "data base") from which comes the name World Wide Web.

Hypertext is text that contains links (often called "hotlinks") from words or phrases to other documents that elaborate, explain, or otherwise follow a thought embodied in the linking word or phrase. For example, we might highlight the word "links" above. Clicking on that word would then connect you--via the HyperText Transport Protocol (HTTP)--to a fuller discussion of the linking concept in a separate document. This second document might reside on your own computer or on a computer half a world away. Note that our definition of "document" includes text, images, sound, and video in any combination.

a textual presentation scheme in which users may access passages of text by using links or pointers imbedded in the text to select other, related, passages
Pages of content that contain linkages to other documents or data sources. One example of hypertext is the HTML code commonly used in World Wide Web pages.
programs in which the text is an active button that can be clicked to recall something.

Text in the form of highlighted and/or underlined words or phrases in a document that contain links to other documents. When “clicked” by the user enables another document to be retrieved and viewed.
Term coined by Ted Nelson denoting the linked across a potentially unlimited number of informational sources. One link takes the user to another document, which contains links to other documents (and so forth), and these documents can be located on any hyper- text- capable system anywhere in the world. Hypertext is the basis of the World Wide Web.

hypermedia Nonlinear, or multilinear, computerized text. Unlike book pages, which are arranged in a set linear order, hypertexts are arranged in nodes or parts that may be viewed in a variety of orders by following links. Hypertext and hypermedia are usually used interchangeably since computer hypertexts often include graphics, sounds, or movies. Some hypertexts, such as a multimedia information kiosk in an airport, are just for reading or viewing; other hypertexts are interactive, meaning that the reader can make changes or add links. The World Wide Web is an interactive hypertext environment, because readers with the right hardware and software can publish their own documents and link to others.
This is a link on a web page that allows you to move to another site, page or to another location on the same page. The link usually has a different colour and may be underlined.

On the World Wide Web, the feature, built into HTML, that allows a text area, image, or other object to become a "link" (as if in a chain) that retrieves another computer file (another Web page, image, sound file, or other document) on the Internet. The range of possibilities is limited by the ability of the computer retrieving the outside file to view, play, or otherwise open the incoming file. It needs to have software that can interact with the imported file. Many software capabilities of this type are built into browsers or can be added as "plug-ins."
Text within a Web page that is specially formatted to provide a connection to another page or location within the same page. Keywords in a document, for instance, can be made into hypertext links to more in-depth information.

A special type of database system, invented by Ted Nelson in the 1960s, in which objects (text, pictures, music, programs, and so on) can be creatively linked to each other.
A special type of database system where objects can be links together. By selecting an object, you can see all the objects that are linked or connected to it, even though the objects may be of different forms.

A means of linking computer-based documents in a non-linear way. For example, suppose you are reading a biography of Nelson Mandela and you come to a reference to his winning of the Nobel Peace Prize. In a hypertext document, a link could be made between the Mandela biography (the current document) and a document describing the Nobel Peace Prize and all of its winners.

A way of presenting information in which text, sounds, images and actions are joined by links together in a way that allows the user to go from one page to another in any order.
Hypertext is a system of browsing the Internet, whereby you can move from document to document in a multiplicity of ways. Each document has a number of links (often represented by underlined text) to related documents anywhere else on the internet. The use of hypertext mark-up language (HTML) and hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP), which is capable of supporting text, images and multimedia, has led to the development since the late 1980's of the World Wide Web.
System of linking files (text, graphics, video or sound) through embedded links.

A type of text that allows embedded "links" to other documents. Click on a highlighted word or section of a Web page, and you will 'jump' to another page that could be located on another continent. Web pages on similar topics are often linked this way to allow a user to easily find material that's related.
Text that contains embedded links to other documents or information.
Developed by Ted Nelson in the 1960s, a path, or link to other information and objects located on computers connected to the World Wide Web. George P. Landow (3) defines hypertext as "the use of the computer to transcend the linear, bounded and fixed qualities of the traditional written text." From Hypermedia and Literary Studies (Paul Delany and George P. Landow, eds.Cambridge, MA. MIT Press, 1991).
The highlighted words on World Wide Web pages that enable you to jump from one page to another without typing commands.

underlined text that points to another web page. Google pays particular attention to the text used in a hyperlink and associates the keywords contained in the hyperlink text to the page being linked to. Also see "Google bombing." [ edit
A text that contains links to other documents. In a hypertext, words or phrases in the document can be chosen by a reader which cause another document to be retrieved and displayed. [ google.com] Conceptually, hypertext conceives information as nodes and link networks forming navigable path that can be toured, returned to and referenced in non-linear or multi-linear fashion. [ cyberartsweb.org] This site uses "computer hypertext" in it's broadest sense as text composed of blocks of words (or images) linked electronically by multiple paths, chains, or trails in an open-ended, perpetually unfinished textuality described by the terms link, node, network,web, and path. [ George P. Landow in Hypertext 2.0] Ted Nelson is given general credit for coining the term.
Works in hypertext are meant to be more than words and other images. These productions (ingrained magnetically on computer diskette or CD) are conceived to take advantage of readers' and writers' propensities to seek out twists in narrative trajectories and to bushwhack from the main path of multifaceted reference topics. Hypertext books incorporate documents, graphics, sounds, and even blank slates upon which readers may compose their own variations on the authored components. The computer's capacities to afford such diversions can bring reader and hypertext literature so close as to gain entry to each other's mind-sets - which is what good books have always done.
A computer application that integrates at least one other medium with text, such as sound or graphics. Integrating all media together in one application, with some kind of navigation system among them, creates a hypermedia application.
Text containing internal and external links or pointers to other texts or services.
