The documents that HTX is concerned with are written using the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML).
Of course, any page of hypertext written using HTML could be
considered a document in its own right. However, most documents of
substance will consist of multiple pages of HTML, joined together
using hypertext links. It is convenient to gather these
related pages together and to consider them as a single multi-page
hypertext document. This is the sense in which the term document
is used here.
