Some years ago, the problem of providing efficient and easy-to-use user interfaces was one of the key issues in the development of any system. The explosion of hypertext systems to be used over the Internet has immensely simplified the approach to this problem. Due to its vast popularity, HTML is currently an obvious choice for the protocol on which to base an hypertext system.

This paper has shown that HTML tools can be used successfully to build applications not strictly related to NIR, such as access to local help, data and information at a ground-based telescope.
