What I'm seeing in drafts
The links seem to be providing exposition to the main ideas rather than spelling them out as we typically do. The semantic/semiotic connection between where the link leaves and where it ends up is suggested rather than stated. That means that the leaving point of the link has to somehow direct how the connection is interpreted. (Linking shows just how much we do interpret the connections and how much work we do for readers.)

You can see how this juxtapositoning works to create and re-create meaning in Anna's disney princess, second para, with placement of doll next to text describing dinner at the Green Mill (pink - green - duh!). It's that kind of richness I think we can achieve through linking to other material outside the essay: the idea is placing elements/artifacts that must? can? be interpreted in contrast to the main essay. (That runs against we typically use links.) See Anna's links to Mulan, et al.
Suggest: open links in the same window.

The stress point is in how to get a suggestion of the direction to take things in the link text or surrounding text. Another might be in locating a source that works, throws the focus on the source you want the focus to take: eg, the Disney Site v the text of Grimm's version of Rapunzel.

Might try suggesting where the reference is going by quoting a bit from the target. by alluding to where the link is going. by adding an in-line image. by calling out the link in a list or some other way ...

Heavy Linking Ideas

Most of these links point to materials on hypertext essays - essays made of chunks that link internally. I'm asking more for a single text that links out. However, there are starting points in these materials.
