Authors of traditional mathematical texts often have difficulty balancing the amount of contextual information and proof detail. We propose a simple hypermedia framework that can assist in the organisation and presentation of mathematical theorems and definitions. We describe the application of the framework to convert an existing course in general topology to a web-based set of materials. Two user evaluations of the materials indicated both successful and unsuccessful aspects of the framework. We discuss further lines of investigation, in particular, the presentation of larger bodies of work.
