All link tags include an "anchor hypertext
reference," <A HREF="http://
theURLof.the.webpage">, the words or image
you want to use as the link, and a "closing tag," </A>.
So, your actual link would look like this:
<A HREF="http://www.mypage.com">My Page</A>
Be sure NOT to forget the
closing tag, </A>
on your links. If you do, the link will spill over to
all words that follow it.
When you are linking to additional pages that you have
created that are located in your own web directory, you
don't have to include the entire URL. You can just use
a relative address that looks like this:
<A HREF="page2.html">Page 2</A>
That link would point to a page entitle "page2.html" that
you created and uploaded to the same directory that your
"index.html" page was in.
Another type of link is an E-Mail link. These are very
similar, but worded just a bit differently. Here is an
example for you to copy and paste:
<A HREF="mailto:email@example.com">Email Me</A>
You can also include internal links to
another place on the current web page, but we will save that
for the more advanced users.
