Hi Michael ,
I'm not familiar with the concept of Micro Frontends.
From another answer you posted ,it seems that Micro Frontends are kind of like a wrapper around multiple web applications.

How would this vary from a web page with multiple hyperlinks  on it ?

Hi Paul,

it doesn't have to vary. I'd say a project where different page types are built by different teams and where these pages are only connected via links would quality as a micro frontends architecture.
My books starts with exactly this example [1].

However, for many use-cases this very simple approach will not be sufficient. You might want to show functionality from different systems on the same view. To enable this we need a composition technique. The most basic one is to use an iframe, but you can also use solutions like AJAX, Server-Side Includes or Web Components to provide a more performant and seamless user experience.

If your use-case requires client-side rendered page transitions for an app-like user experience you might want to move from links (hard navigations) to an overarching client-side router (aka application shell) that enables soft navigations. Then you're building a Single Page App that consists of Single Page App. I'll address all of these topics in the main part of the book.

I've also set up a little site, The Tractor Store[2], where you can see the running example code from the book. Example #1 is "Links & Pages"
