Art of Middle Age is:

- a chronological approach, comparing art production on 3 parallel timelines for 3 civilisations: Occident, Byzance and Islam,
- about 1.000 works of art,
- 55 audiovisual sequences, 33 of them with high interactive control and possibility of zooming on the works,
- a visual intuitive high quality user interface with a rich network of interactive links.

Besides this interface, the HyperNotes system offers a sophisticated hypertext interface for a deeper exploration of the contents and for exchange of comments between users of the cd-rom.

HyperNotes provides the following features:
- easy access to the integral text of all audiovisual sequences and screens in hypertext format,
- hyperlinks to definitions, and to all screens and sequences in the cd-rom,
- glossary, table of contents, index, memory of navigation,
- a hypertext editor allowing one to compose his/her hypertext notes with full references to the cd-rom sequences. These can be used for commented bookmarks, personal notes, or discussions to be shared with other users of the cd-rom,
- a free text search engine,
- a HyperNotes file format allowing easy sharing between users and publishing through Internet.
