Creating a Link

With links being such a basic and historical part of the Internet, they also have a very simple tag; <a>...</a>. Any text between a hyperlink element’s tags will display as “hypertext”. Traditionally, this has been blue, underlined text, visually signifying to the user that the text is a link.

In order to link to another document, the author must include a hyper-reference attribute within the opening tag. This attribute is signified with href="".

Note # is a URL placeholder.

<a href="#">link text</a>
