HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language
Part 9: Internal Targets or Bookmarks
Now we are going to take a look at internal targets. Internal targets are
links to another section of your web page. They allow us to specify and
navigate through specific parts of a page. We can take you to a certain
paragraph, or take you to the top. The Internal target or bookmark is a type
of anchor tag that NAMES the location it surrounds.
1.Adding an anchor: To begin. you must name whatever section
you want to jump to. Just put an anchor before it and give it a name. Add
the end of the anchor after it.
Internal targets use the Name attribute of the anchor. This does not show as
a hyperlink in the page.
2. Linking to a Name anchor: Hyperlinks to these internal targets
refer to the location within the page, or the name attribute as #name.
Before whatever you want the viewer to click on to go to that area you add a
< a href="#"> tag using the same name as the internal target. Here I used
the name "top". The linked words will be followed by the close of the anchor
<A HREF="#top">This will take you to the page top</a>
3. Adding an internal target code to your lesson page: On your page
code you have been working on in these lessons, add a target anchor right
after your body tag, and before your sound, add this tag: and be sure to end
it wih a </a>after your sound, so it will loook like this
<A NAME="top"><embed src="http://www.porshiana.com/sample.mid"
volume="30%" hidden="false" autostart="true loop="true" height="100"></a>
4. Adding a link to your internal taget: At the bottom of your page
right after you end your list, prior to the end of your body </body>, lets
make a link to go back to the top. Is should appear like this:
<A HREF="#top">Take Me To The Top</A>
Save, and view it in a browser.
I am going to add a few more internal targets, one for the numbered and
unnumbered list. If you do this also, your code will look like this:
Now we know how to link within out document.
When you are ready , we can move on to our final
lesson, lesson 10, email links and horizontal rules
