WWWeb Hypertext Style

Page Header/FooterIn books, page headers and footers are used to provide contextual information as a navigation aid to the reader. Headers generally contain the name of the current chapter on one page and the name of the current section on the opposite page.
Similar kinds of contextual cues can be provided in hypertext documents. A header at the top of each page could contain the document title and the author's name while a footer at the bottom of each page might include document version information and/or the URL of the page. Each page should contain its name as a sub header. If the page name is also used as the internal page title, then the window title in Netscape Navigator will also contain the section or node name.1
A pre-footer can be used to hold standard links to the top of the document and to the document's index.
