<hypertext> A term coined by Ted Nelson around 1965 for a
collection of documents (or "nodes") containing
cross-references or "links" which, with the aid of an
interactive browser program, allow the reader to move easily
from one document to another.
The extension of hypertext to include other media - sound,
graphics, and video - has been termed "hypermedia", but
is usually just called "hypertext", especially since the
advent of the web and HTML.
