I stand corrected, thank you.  FWIW, I suspect that others outside of that 
part of the Research community may pick up a connotation that is 
unintended.  I think it's a reasonable misunderstanding for a novice 
seeing the term "hypertext" to suspect that it in fact refers to some form 
of text, and thus fails to cover linking of other sorts of information. No 
need to discuss further, just take this as one bit of input and move ahead 
as you see fit.  Thank you.
