Hypermedia communicative devices are patterns of hypermedia presentation structure with specific affects on the user. Some devices have been determined for affecting the user with abstract authoring constructs, such as rhetorical structure. However, these devices each typically focus on particular aspects of the structure of hypermedia presentation. This paper presents a framework for hypermedia communicative devices that simultaneously affects multiple dimensions of presentation structure. In discussing this, we focus on the document's rhetorical structure as input to these devices.
