If you need to ask, you can't afford it.

file's describing the linkage between pages
For example, each page of a multi-page heirarchial documentation would have a tag pointing to a special file that maps out the entire document tree.
its not a copy of other ideas, this is a little improved than just next/last links.
best of all, browser's supporting them could have sidebars
that list the contents in a unified way, preload the entire set of documents (perhaps even from an archive if the file format could specify such), and the next/last/up links of web pages would be built into the browser when needed.
this could all be done with a simple plug-in for mozilla, netscape, or ie.
This sort of thing? [JKew, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]
||This reminds me of Microsoft's MSDN Library site (link) which has a contents tree at left and body at right.
||JKew: basic idea, yeah. but i want it implemented at a browser level.
