HyperText

A HyperText is a collection of pages. Each page within the collection may link to other pages. There is no intrinsic "next" page, there is no real table of contents with a list of the pages in a hierarchical structure. Ordering pages and imposing a hierarchical structure upon them is part of the BookMetaphor.

The World Wide Web (WWW) is one big HyperText. The WWW has all the benefits and drawbacks of a HyperText. You can find these in any sufficiently large subset of the WWW, be it your own homepage, your company's intranet, whatever.
