This document looks at some of the theoretical connections between communications theory and hypertext theory using an actual case study in conversion of a multi-format technical document from print to hypertext delivery. By focusing on issues of author control, readability, and cohesion, the process of retrofitting documents from print to hypertext is explored to reveal areas where conflict between mediums might occur and where hypertext offers new ways to construct a discourse.
