Abstract

Disclosed is a new method for hypermedia editing. In previous systems, a user can edit hypermedia documents specifying a link source and a link target by turns. The new methods of this disclosure are as follows: - The user can edit a node and a link in a map browser which displays a node and link organization in map form (Fig. 1 and 2). - To copy link information which is created in a browser to an object in a node, the user can create a link from an object (Fig. 3 and 4).

Hypermedia System

       Disclosed is a new method for hypermedia editing. In
previous systems, a user can edit hypermedia documents specifying a
link source and a link target by turns. The new methods of this
disclosure are as follows:
   - The user can edit a node and a link in a map browser which
displays a node and link organization in map form (Fig. 1 and 2).
   - To copy link information which is created in a browser to an
object in a node, the user can create a link from an object (Fig. 3
and 4).

      The first feature provides an interactive (non-sequential)
editing environment for hypermedia documents, and the second feature
provides a link creation not only from a node but also from an object
in a node.
1) Hypermedia document creation by browser

      The map browser will display the link organization (network) of
the hypermedia documents (see Fig. 1). The user can create/edit a
node/link in the browser. Fig. 2 shows the creation of a new node.
After this operation is done, new links are automatically created
from Node D and N.
2) Link copy to make an object-based link

      A node is constructed by some objects. Fig. 3 shows the
example.  In a node N, there are a text object and a graphics object
(in an area Y). Furthermore, there are some links from this node
which is displayed in area X. The user can copy the link information
to any object (see Fig. 4). After this operation is done, a text
object ("hypermedia") has a link to Node C.
