Actually, the hypertex situation is very messy as there are two,
incompatible sets of hypertex \specials in use.

One set comes from the HyperTeX project, and the other from YandY (a
commercial package for the PC, which, as far as I know, is the only
PC based system that uses ANY kind of hypertex.)

Neither group supports the \specials from the other.

A standard for hypertex specials would be EXTREMELY useful, as,
currently, there is no way to provide hypertex dvis readable on both
unix and PC platforms. Thus, if you want to distribute hyperlinked
documents accessible to all, pdf seems the best answer. (Hyperps also
exists, and has its advocates.)

But standards for either this or for inclusion of graphics are
unlikely to come about any time soon.
