What is Hypertext

Hypertext is a type of text that is structured using hyperlinks, which are connections between different pieces of content that allow users to navigate between them. Hypertext is typically used in electronic documents, such as web pages, where it allows users to click on links to access related or additional information.

Hypertext can be used to create a non-linear structure for text, where users can choose their own path through the content and jump between different sections or documents. This can make it easier for users to find and access specific information, and can also enhance the interactive and exploratory nature of reading.

Hypertext can be created using HTML (HyperText Markup Language), which is a standardized markup language for creating web pages. HTML uses tags to define the structure and formatting of a web page, and hyperlinks are created using the <a> (anchor) tag.
