The research community uses the term "hypertext" to encompass all
forms of interaction with information through active links.  The
term hypermedia is sometimes used as well, though much less now
than a decade ago.  We usually differentiate between active and
descriptive links when talking architecture.  Hypertext and links
are therefore not synonymous.
