Multi-Layered Cross-Media Linking

Multi-Layered Cross-Media Linking

Presentation given at Hypertext 2003, 14th ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia. Nottingham, United Kingdom.

ABSTRACT: The integration of printed paper and digital information enables new forms of enhanced reading. We present digitally augmented paper as a specific application of our more general Integration Server (iServer) architecture for crossmedia information management. Multi-layered linking is introduced as a way to manage the granularity of link anchors and an application making active use of multi-layered links is presented. Furthermore, we point out how the concept of supporting multiple layers in link management can be applied to other media such as, for example, XHTML in combination with the XML Linking Language (XLink).
