Lab 1.4 Exercises

1.4.1. Apply the Rules of Hypertext to Hypertext Components

The “Golden Rules” primarily address fragments/nodes and usability.

a) What guidelines or restrictions should be presumed regarding use of links? Hint: For example, does “fragments are loosely associated with one another, though not necessarily in a sequential manner,” imply anything about number of or directionality of links?

A1:

Answer: The “Golden Rules” imply that all nodes must have (at a minimum) an “entry” and an “exit.” This could be accomplished with either two unidirectional links or one bidirectional link. In addition to this minimum, nodes can have any number of additional links, depending upon how closely associated they are with other nodes. This basically means that there must be some way of getting to the node. For example, it would not be very efficient to have Web pages on your site to which there are no links or other ways to access them such as a keyword search.
