HOUR 5. Making Hyperlinks, Anchors, and Mailto Links
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN IN THIS HOUR:
• When to use relative and absolute paths
• How to create a hyperlink to another page within a website and a hyperlink to a page outside a website
• How to create hyperlinks within a page
• How to add a link that opens a preaddressed email message
Clicking a hyperlink allows the viewer to jump to another web page, jump to another section of the current web page, or launch an email message. A website is made up of a group of web pages, and hyperlinks enable viewers to navigate from page to page. Hyperlinks, in the simplest form, are the familiar underlined and colored (usually blue) text that you click. You can also make an image a hyperlink.
