Depending on the target hypertext application, RTF, SGML, or some other format may be most appropriate. Remember that throwing information out is always easier than putting it in later. Many applications such as DynaText, etc., now accept SGML or a subset of SGML as an external format. For small hypertext applications, Microsoft Windows Help files may be appropriate. The Windows Help compiler is available with any compiler able to create Window applications. The Help files may be distributed without paying any fees. As the Microsoft Help Compiler only accepts RTF, material must either be made using RTF or converted to it.
