Hyper-DVI, then.  Sure, should work just fine.  I was thinking that
Hyper-Postscript would take about the same amount of work, and probably
provide a bigger payback, in terms of versatility.  In fact, Paul
Kranenburg at Erasmus University in the Netherlands just sent me a
version that only needs two changes:  first, the links it supports are
Sun answerbook links, rather than Internet URL's (trivial change); and
second, it's implemented as an XView widget rather than an Xt widget
(sort of a big change).  The links are just comments in the Postscript
which indicate a document, and a sensitive rectangle on the page.  The
widget ``signals'' the specified document when the user clicks on the
specified region.  Easy.  In fact, dvips could generate this format from
Hyper-DVI, I imagine.
