Objectives and Approach

The purpose of the HYTEA project is to implement a set of tools to support the development of large and complex hypertext/hypermedia applications.

The target of the project is applications which exhibit a number of specific features: the body of information to be represented is very large and complex; the authoring effort is long-lasting (continuous maintenance or updates); and there is a clear-cut distinction between authors and readers.

For applications with the above features, authors need support in several respects:

The expected results of HYTEA are:

Different media will be supported (both in the model and in the tools): text, still graphics, animated graphics, sound, still images, video images, etc. The implementation environment will support a number of different standards and technologies: CD, CD-I, DVI, etc.

End-users are directly involved in the project.
