Abstract: We propose a new hypermedia data model, called CHM for Contained HyperMedia. Our model is based on set-oriented data structuring, with a strong emphasis on automatic maintenance of link integrity. In this paper, the CHM model is presented in detail: both data structuring, navigational facilities and authoring support are presented. We will also explain how we have integrated support for the CHM model in Home, our Hypermedia Object Management Environment, publicly accessible through the World-Wide Web.
