The web is an advanced feature specific to InterMedia. According to Yankelovich et al.:
A web is essentially a way of defining a context or
database in which a typically large set of related block, link, keyword,
and path information is stored. The web allows individual users, groups
of users, or, in the extreme, an entire campus to create a shared web
of materials from different applications. Two webs might exist that
reference the same documents but have an entirely different set of links.
Note that this definition of "web" has nothing to do with the World Wide Web.
