Hypertextual reports on issues in hypertext rhetoric and presentation that arise in composing a large argumentative hypertext that is associated with a book version of the same project. I mean books you can read on frenchtheory.com.
It concerns not the old navigation problem for the lost reader, but the construction problem for the uncertain author. Hypertextual discusses link patterns and the pressure of book upon the structure of the hypertext. A hypertext does not need to be associated with a book to feel these pressures from our habits with other media (TV, DVD, hypermedia PC...). How can a long expository hypertext be made accessible, and argue for its views, without sacrificing the virtues of hypertextual presentation?
The next thougts on hypertextual attempt to exemplify as well as discuss these issues.
