Abstract—ULTRALAB is a learning technology research centre researching & developing learning software and producing CD-ROM products.  Recently the team has become interested in publishing through the Internet using the indexing and retrieval software, Gopher and the hypermedia system World Wide Web using Mosaic software.  These products and the software protocols underlying them present new design challenges, new opportunities for international publishing and a realisation of the hypertext dream.  Nevertheless there are constraints to be identified and criticisms to make.  This paper discusses these issues and some of the work ULTRALAB has developed in tackling them.

Lewis Carroll describes a fictional map that had:

"the scale of a mile to the mile."

A character notes some practical difficulties with such a map and states that:

"we now use the country itself, as its own map, and I assure you it does nearly as well."
— Sylvie and Bruno Concluded, Lewis Carroll, 1893
