A computer system, program product and method of displaying documents control the relative alignment of hypertext links by adjusting previously-determined display positions of selected hypertext links in a document. The relative alignment of the hypertext links may be controlled to unalign hypertext links that are in close proximity with one another and eliminate any overlap between the links, which assists in minimizing the inadvertent selection of unintended links. In addition, the relative alignment of the hypertext links may also be controlled to align the hypertext links, which may be useful for aesthetic purposes and/or to minimize pointer movement requirements for a group of related (and aligned) links.
