In this paper, we propose a temporal link mechanism for ’time-dependent’ hypermedia. It has become a serious problem to maintain link information at all times according to updating. It is very important to keep consistency and maintain the updates, especially for broadcast hypermedia, which are transmitted from a server to a client via the internet or a broadcasting system. The mechanism we propose supports links in broadcast hypermedia to designate adequate anchors automatically. We also describe the implementation issues of the link mechanism.
