This paper will analyse a variety of interaction styles that can be designed in hypermedia applications, will point out the need of using them consistently, and will analyze the possible design trade-offs between richness of interaction and easiness of use. Examples will be taken from a museum hypermedia we are currently developing in co-operation with the Poldi Pezzoli Museum in Milano.
