||As already mentioned in many reports, the best hyperlink is the one, you don’t have to follow. Therefore authors of hypertext-documents should make it clear to the reader, what is ”behind” the link. This is not just information about size of the linked content, but also information about the content itself, such as topic, number of incoming links etc. However, unexperienced authors are not aware of this fact. It would be nice to have tools plugged-in into your favorite web-browsing software, which enhances hyperlinks in some respects In this article we are going to explore some of the available tools (such as thumbnail-previewing) and we will discuss in detail a mechanism of enhancing and ”ennobling” links. We will discuss different mechanisms on how to attach information.
