Abstract. The WWW has turned into a development and run-time environment for large-scale and complex
applications. Such sophisticated applications are being deployed in increasing numbers without having been
developed according to appropriate methodologies, tools and quality standards. The reason is not only that the
hypermedia industry resists to utilize formal methods, but also that these methods and corresponding tools are very
few and of dubious standards. The consequence is that the hypermedia applications being developed are of poor
functionality and lack qualities such as modifiability, usability and maintainability. Especially the design phase is
one of the phases that lack sufficient support from methods and CASE tools. This paper presents CRITON, a cross
platform tool, built to support a hypermedia design method within an integrated environment. CRITON manages
all three aspects of hypermedia design: conceptual design, navigational design and graphical user interface design,
utilizing well-established theories and practices from software as well as hypermedia engineering. It employs these
designs to generate a preliminary, exemplary form of the hypermedia application for the purpose of assessing the
