The Hypertext and The Web
The hypertext is a text that is not supposed to be linear. The prefix hyper- (comes from the Greek prefix “υπερ-” and means “over” or “beyond”) signifies the overcoming of the old linear constraints of written text. A man called Ted Nelson was the one who coined the two words: hyper and text.We can talk about the hypertext as a link that guides a user to another text related with the one he/she is reading. The most common hypertext is called hyperlink (hypervínculo), those are the links that sends you automatically to other documents to find adding information or to find related documents …
In the year 1992, connected to the World Wide Web, Lynx, a free open-source, was created. It provided hypertext links with documents that could reach other kind or types of documents and with this system little by little the Web was created on the Internet. In the year 1993 another free open-source called Mosaic was starting to replace Lynx, cause the first one was used in the XvWindow that was the most famous and popular and also allowed images and another kind of better hypertexts.
