Hypertext presents a way to present text to readers that differs greatly from linear text. When text is presented linearly, there is a single order to read the text. However, in hypertext, information is represented in more of a semantic network and a reader may choose a path through the text that will be most relevant to his or her interests. While this permits added flexibility, it is not clear whether this flexibility is always an advantage to the reader. There have been strong claims of the superiority of hypertext over linear text, but research has often shown advantages for linear text over hypertext. Thus, it is not clear how, and with what features, a hypertext may be properly written.
