The generic definition is good enough
a hypertext consists of topics and their connections, where ... the topics may be paragraphs, sentences, individual words or ... digitized graphics. A hypertext is like a printed book that the author has attacked with a pair of scissors and cut into convenient verbal sizes. The difference is that the electronic hypertext does not simply dissolve into a disordered bundle of slips, as the printed book must. For the author -

And now prick up your ears because you're going to be told something important -
For the author also defines a scheme of electronic connections to indicate relationships among the slips. In fashioning a hypertext, a writer might begin with a passage of continuous prose and then add notes or glosses on important words in the passage.... [T]he glosses themselves could contain glosses, leading the reader to further texts. (Bolter, 279)

A tidy definition, which points us to HypertextAuthoring.
