Techopedia Explains HypertextThe concept of hypertext was central to the creation of the World Wide Web. Through the use of textual links, Web pages written in HyperText Markup Language (HTML) can be linked and cross-referenced throughout the Web. Ted Nelson actually had a far grander vision for hypertext than Tim Berners-Lee’s World Wide Web, but his project, Xanadu is still under development many decades later.
Nelson also coined the term hypermedia to refer to graphics, sounds and animations that could be similarly interlinked.
