ABSTRACT Hypertext systems went through several stages of development and dedicated research efforts. Currently, the World Wide Web is the backbone which links massive amount of hypertext and hypermedia documents published by communities and individuals working from all parts of the universe. However, the history of hypertext systems reveals that there were a competition between the Web and two open hypermedia systems which are Hyper-G and Microcosm. The aim of this paper is to investigate the…

Use of Internet for Education Learning among Female University Students of Punjab, Pakistan
Current era is called era of internet technology. Internet provides platform where various channels are just one click far away. The core aspire of this research study was to explore internet use for


Integrating open hypermedia systems with the World Wide Web
Three experiments exploring the integration of the Chimera OHS with the Web are presented and one of the experiments indeed describes work which enhances the Web, the other two investigate ways in which the Web can beneficially enhance an OHS.
Hyper-G: A New Tool for Distributed Hypermedia
This paper presents Hyper-G from the user's perspective, outlines the basic architecture of the system, and describes its interaction with existing distributed information retrieval tools like Gopher, WAIS, and World Wide Web.
The evolution of hypertext link services
How hypertext systems have evolved to become distributed and open providers of information services is described and the nature of the linking that forms the basis of hypertext functionality is examined.
MICROCOSM: An Open Model for Hypermedia with Dynamic Linking
A model of an open hypermedia architecture with dynamic linking features is proposed that moves some way to resolving these problems, and the first implementation of the system, Microcosm, is presented and discussed.
Towards an integrated information environment with open hypermedia systems
It is presented the case that such systems provide a step forward for dealing with large, dynamic data sets in distributed, heterogeneous environments by allowing users to access and integrate information and processes in richer and more diverse ways than has been possible.
Hyper-G: A Distributed Hypermedia System
This paper shows how Hyper-G is currently being transformed into a global hypermedia information system distributed over Internet that retainsHyper-G’s advanced functionality such as automatic link generation and maintenance, navigation facilities, access rights, and distributed searching, and makes ef-(cid:12)cient use of network bandwidth by extensive caching.
MICROCOSM: An Open Hypermedia Environment for Information Integration
This report examines open hypermedia systems, and argues that such systems provide users with richer and more diverse ways to access and integrate information from large and dynamic data sets in a
Inferring Web communities from link topology
This investigation shows that although the process by which users of the Web create pages and links is very difficult to understand at a “local” level, it results in a much greater degree of orderly high-level structure than has typically been assumed.
Fluid annotations through open hypermedia: using and extending emerging web standards
How various Web standards, including DOM, CSS, XLink, XPointer, and RDF, can be used and extended to support fluid annotations is described.
