How Links Work

An HTML link is a pointer from a Web page to another item on the Internet. Links can be text or images. Text links are usually desig-nated visually on the page by underlining and by color, usually blue by default. Links have two parts: a URL (Universal Resource Locator) and a label or image that is visible in the user's browser. When a Web site visitor clicks a link's label, the Web browser uses the link's URL to locate the desired item. The browser then displays, downloads, or connects to the item.

Links can point to other pages within your site, to a remote Web site, or to non-Web resources, such as FTP servers, newsgroups, and e-mail addresses.
