thanks for your quick reply. Unfortunately I can not see how which.rc is helpful. Apparently '&token' is checked for the string 'hypertext' and thats all I can see. But my question is more fundamental.

- how is hypertext 'produced'? Is it something that can be written in file, or does it exists only in viles buffer?
- how is written? What are the control sequences, that vile recognize  as a hypertext command.

As a summary of these two questions: Is it possible to write hypertext source to be interpreted by vile, similar of what a html file is to a web browser?

I don't know if this is too ambitious, but I'd like use viles hypertext  
features for different tasks ( a simple wiki, literate programming and a  
simple email client ).  AFAIK there are two well known plugins that use  
hypertext features: the filebrowser and the grep tool.

The which-keywords macro also uses the feature (though much simpler).
That's in "which.rc"; looking for places that refer to hypertext in
that might be simpler than reading the perl code.

I used it to markup the report that shows where a given keywords file
is found.  To "click" on the link, I put the cursor on the link and
type ^X-z.  Inside the link, there is a "view" command followed by
the actual pathname, which is quoted to make this work with filenames
that have embedded blanks.
