Understanding Hyperlinks

Without hyperlinks there would be no World Wide Web, just a multitude of isolated pages like unknown islands in an uncharted sea. It's not for nothing that people speak of navigating the Web; it really is like a vast and ever-expanding collection of islands, and the hyperlinks are like the trade and communications routes that bind them together across the electronic deeps.

Less poetically, hyperlink generally refers to the highlighted words (or specially defined images) that you click on a Web page to access a different resource on the Web or the Internet. Tucked away behind this highlight or image is a string of HTML code that gives your browser the URL for the new location and directs the browser to jump to that location. FrontPage generates this code automatically when you tell it to set up a hyperlink.
