Abstract: Versioning of hypertext documents is in many aspects very similar to versioning of software systems (and their components). In the paper we concentrate on an analysis of similarities and differences between them with the intention of possibly finding in the area of software configuration management a starting point for a new method of version control in hypertext systems. Then, we have proposed a model of a hypertext document which takes into account the perspective of its permanent change. Hypertext documents are modelled by two kinds of nodes in an AND/OR graph. The model forms a basis for building a configuration.

Keywords: hypertext document, hypertext document model, version, configuration.
