2.1 Manual Conversion

Manual conversion involves using a hypertext authoring tool to create nodes and links manually. Hence, this process depends on the way the author (or the person who builds the hypertext form from a linear form) understands the structure and flow of the presented material. Being a repetitive process, it is prone to human error. There cannot be anything worse than a badly converted hypertext version of a linear document. Also, manual conversion is suitable only for small documents.
