Abstract: With the growth of the World Wide Web, information is increasingly being presented to readers in large quantities and in forms that can be rapidly searched to suit their needs. Poor design and a failure to consider the user often act against effectiveness in communication. With a new emphasis on the Web and hypertext design and their impact, The Second Edition of Designing Usable Electronic Text explores the human issues underlying information usage, and stresses that usability (or the lack of it), a major quality of the user experience of technology, remains a barrier to the digital medium's campaign to gain mass acceptance.
