This paper discusses the use of hypertext functionality in software engineering environments (SEEs). We discuss some of the outstanding problems in the construction and use of SEEs and software repositories, and show that by using hypertext it is possible to enhance their functionality. The integration of hypertext into this kind of software system poses several challenges in design and implementation, however. Two different approaches for implementing hypertext functionality are presented.
