virtual hypertext

From Glossary of "Weaving the Web" (1999-07-23) | Glossary for this source

Hypertext that is generated from its URI by a program, rather than by recourse to a stored file. This was my name for the idea. The CERN phone book was the first example, in 1991. It is sometimes difficult to tell, and impossible to define formally, what is virtual hypertext and what is not.
