Let's look at a web page

Once you get the computer connected to the Internet (in the next chapter), the rest is easy. Below is a typical web page, displayed on the screen using a browser. One of the most important features on web pages is links. You click on a link with your mouse, and the browser "jumps" to another web page with different information. You know an item (either text or a graphic) is a link because your pointer turns into a little pointing hand, like this: or . You can usually tell a text link even without the pointing hand because the text is usually underlined.

Another important feature of a web page is its address. Every web page has an individual address, just like a house address. The address is also called the URL (pronounced "you are ell"). If someone says, "Hey, what's your url?" they mean, "What's the address to your web site?"
