We present an approach to text navigation conceived as a cognitive process exploiting linguistic information present in texts. We claim that the navigational knowledge in- volved in this process can be modeled in a declarative way with the Sextant language. Since Sextant refers exhaustively to specific linguistic phenomena, we have defined a customized text representation. These dif- ferent components are implemented in the text navigation system NaviTexte. Two ap- plications of NaviTexte are described.
