File Under: Glossary

Link

A link is a bit of highlighted text on a web page that connects to another web page or file. Clicking the link sends your browser in search of the address attached to the text. That address can refer to another place on the same page, another page within the same site, or just about anywhere on the internet. If you could peel back the text of the link to Webmonkey and view the HTML underneath, you’d see:

<a href="http://www.webmonkey.com/">Webmonkey</a>

If you clicked on the text of the link, you would be taken to that URL.
