- HypeRtext is text with pointers to others text
- the browsers let you deal with the pointers in a transparent way, select the pointer, and you are presented with the text that is pointed to.
- hypermedia is a superset of hypertext
- hypermedia documents contain links not only to other places of text but also to other forms of media-sounds,images, and movies.
