What are the various elements of Hypertext?

Elements of Hypertext: The basic elements of hypertext are defined as

1. Node: Hypertext is a network of nodes. A node is a collection of data organised around a specific topic and related/linked to another body of information.

2. Links: A link is information embedded in a node that connects it in some way to another node. Links are almost always anchored at their departure point to provide the user with some explicit object to activate in order to follow the link.

3. Annotations: Annotations are the special links to a small additional amount of information. Annotations are similar to footnotes in traditional text.

4. Button: Button is a digital use in the node that alerts a user that a link exists. In other words, it is a virtual representation of link in a node.

5. Editor: An editor is a part of the hypertext systems that enables a user to create a node and link it into the network.

6. Browsers: A hypertext browser is a program or subprogram that can display a diagram of a network of nodes. Example: Google Chrome.

7. Trails: Trails is a record of the nodes that a user has accessed in viewing a hypertext network ideally the trail would include "note node" created by the user in the process.

8. Built-in programming languages: Some hypertext systems have built-in programming language, so one can customize the system to fit one's specific needs.
