Although not quite in the same sense as, for example, Robert Kendall’s floating links (described in his paper to the ACM Hypertext ’96 conference; Kendall’s are really, it seems, an elaboration of conditional and typed linking). The present links are simple and untyped, but they float from passage to passage. They are contingent on the reader’s progress and choices, however the links available from a particular passage at a particular point need not be anticipated (programmed or controlled) by a pro-author. In theory, under certain conditions, a link from one passage could ‘float’ to more or less any other passage in the hypertext.
