Did someone say “hypertext?” What's that? Oh, only the entire
basis of the Web. In Chapter 1 we kicked the tires of HTML and found it to be a nice
markup language (the “ML” in HTML) for describing the structure of web pages. Now
we're going to check out the “HT” in HTML, hypertext, which will let us break free of
