Chapter 1. Understanding HTML 4.0 > HTML Infrastructure

HTML Infrastructure

You might have heard that the hypertext and hypermedia environment of the Web is considered to be non-linear. What this means is that instead of following information in a linear, page-by-page fashion, the infrastructure of the Web enables visitors to Web sites to click a link and jump off to ancillary information and related sites.

This also means that HTML authors need to have some sense of the environment and how to create effective architecture within its framework.

It's up to the architect of Web pages to make sense of the Web for visitors.
