Most of the web pages contain links that go to other web pages or web resources. To code a link in HTML use the <a> element (or anchor element). Because this element is an inline element, you usually code it within a block element like <p> element. In this HTML tutorial, you'll learn how to code links.
HTML Link Attribute of <a> Element
|href||Specifies a relative or absolute URL for a link.|
Notes on HTML Link Element
- The content of a link should be a text that clearly indicates where the link is going.
- The <a> element is an inline element that creates a link that loads another web page. The href attribute of this element identifies the page to be loaded.
- The text content of a link is underlined by default to indicate that it's clickable.
- If a link hasn't been visited, it will display in blue. If it has been visited, it will display in purple. You can change these values using CSS.
- If the mouse hovers over a link, the cursor is changed to a hand with the finger pointed as shown above in the featured image of this article.
