The A Tag

HTML has the ability to create links to other documents from within the current document. This is done using the <A> tag. The <A> tag is also known as an "Anchor". The <A> tag has two attributes, NAME and HREF. One is a source, and the other is a destination.

The <A> tag uses one of the following formats:

<A NAME="anchor name"></A>
<A HREF="#anchor name">text of link</A>
<A HREF="URL"></A>
<A HREF="URL#anchor name">text of link</A>
Where: How does the URL work?
