I'm hoping you could clear up a point in a discussion we're having on the Jersey users list.

When the REST architectural style is mapped to HTTP, do the terms hypermedia and hypertext encompass:

(i) HTTP headers and the entity body
(ii) Just the entity body
(iii) Something else (please explain)

Thanks in advance,
