Abstract

Discusses a structured approach to hypertext application design called authoring-in-the-large. This approach is based on the belief that in order to get a consistent, expressive, usable hypertext, the application should be first designed at a conceptual level in a system independent manner. The author should try to describe global properties of an application-its representation structures, navigational patterns, operational semantics, overall visualization and display aspects, before actually creating and filling in the nodes' content. In addition, the paper presents HDM-hypertext design model, a first attempt toward developing high level design primitives for describing static and dynamic aspects of hypertext applications from the authoring-in-the-large point of view
