Someone has done this already, and like all good things on Internet,
it's free. (No it's not Windows NT.)
Worldwide Web (WWW) is an SGML Intenet-wide distributed hypertext system,
interfaces to Gopher (and I think also to WAIS) are already existing.
For more information you might want to ftp to info.cern.ch and have a
look on the files in /pub/www, especially the postscript docs there.

Can you give more pointers into this Labyrinth? Sounds interesting ...

Just put it on a server and someone will turn it into hypertext,
www, gopher, wais and you-name-it :))
