Conference paper


A tourism information homepage is often found to serve many purposes or many different categories of users ranging from curious browsers, potential travellers to virtual tourists. With HTML’s static links, in order to make one set of information shareable among different target audiences, a fixed set of guided searches may be provided through a set of fixed menus from which a user can make selections appropriate for their session mannually. In this paper, we propose to incooperate dynamic hyperlinks to a Tourism Information Service which is being provided distributedly on the WWW. At the beginning of a session, a user can specify what kind of session he/she is planning to do. From this piece of information, the user will be provided with more relevant pages and lankages dynamically.
