Hyperlinking Text and Images

A Hyperlink, link for short, is the basis of web development. It is where you mouse over an image or text, your cursor changes to a hand, you can click it and a new page opens. THis is usefulfor linking a website to all subpages, to link to new websites, to link to images such as thumbmnails that will open full images.

By default, Linked text is underlined, and Linked images have a border around them. In this section we will show you how to link text and images to a url. To remove the underline on text or the border will be discussed in Styles and in inserting images.

The Hyperlink uses the Anchor tag, <a>. The anchor tag opens before the linked object or text and then closes afterwards. The primary attribute of the hyperlink is the HREF which will name the URL or file that the hyperlink is linking to.

To create a Link  you type in the following

<A HREF="../">Developing Webs! </a>

This will appear like

Developing Webs!

To create a link of any image just insert the image tag between the opening anchor tag and the close anchor tag.

<A HREF="../"><img SRC="../images/bannerSmall.jpg"></a>

This will appear as the banner below, ready to be clicked to open a new site.
