You asked about links to multiple points in a hypertext environment. It's
easy enough to manage this in a slightly ad hoc way in HyperCard using various
windowing add-ons. Clicking on a link can bring up two (or more) windows of
text or images; even without windowing add-ons, you easily display a dialog
box with an indication of differnt points to link to, asking the browser to

Isn't the deeper issue one of how to systematically indicate in transparent
fashion both the existence of links (one or many) and and of how to provide
documentation for those links (of what kind: evidence, illustration, analogous
thought, causal link, antithesis; author of link, etc.)?
