The ‘hypertext’ in the field of information technology allowed users to access information relating to the  electronic documents they viewed. Tim Berners-Lee submitted it to a call arranged to create a ‘hypertext’ method for internet. The first structured definition Hypertext Markup Language document was released in 1991 under the name HTML tags and can still be consulted online as a tech relic today.
