Navigating with Hyperlinks

The key to the rapid adoption of the Internet's World Wide Web is the ability to jump quickly from one document to a related document or a particular page of a related document with hyperlinks. If you're reading a North American Web page on consumer electronics products, it's likely that many of the hyperlinks will point to the Web sites of Japanese manufacturers of TV sets, VCRs, and camcorders, such as http://www.sony.co.jp, which usually provide English and Japanese versions of their text content.

Note

On the Web, document and page are synonyms; a Web page basically is a file, usually with an .htm or .html extension, stored in a folder on a Web server. ActiveX documents (formerly called document objects or DocObjects) created by Office 97 applications or Visual Basic 5.0 can be embedded within a Web page, which also may include other text and graphic elements.
