At the end of the 20th century, the single most revolutionary change in information technology will be the availability of electronic information libraries for multimedia users. Hypertext, multimedia, and hypermedia are already established research and application areas. However, very few works deal with the problem of specifications representation for hypermedia. The Extended Warnier Diagram (EWD), an acceptable diagramming technique for specifying hypermedia documents, is introduced. Such a specification should play the role of a general analysis and design representation. The EWD allows many extensions. Since hypermedia is among the fastest growing sectors of computer technology, it is realistic to expect many new features of this immature technology. It is very important to follow that expansion with new extensions to the EWD when necessary.
