"As textual scholars, we are enthusiastic about hypertext because it promises solutions to the problems we've encountered in dealing with variation. There are two clusters of such problems: one has to do with widely-discussed questions about the nature of literary works, and the other has to do with rarely-noticed questions about how we read and study texts. These problems have conditioned the shape of projected hypertext editions, and while they have helped steer us towards hypertext they've also kept us from seeing the full range of hypertext's possibilities."
