Review questions

1:What is a navigational link?
A1: A navigational link is a jump from one location in a Web page to another location on the same page (to an anchor), locally within a site, across the Web, or to non-Web resources such as FTP servers, newsgroups, and e-mail addresses.
2:What is an anchor?
A2: Anchors act as targets for links within the same page. You can create a single link that connects to a single anchor. Or you can create several links that point to a single anchor.
3:What is the best location for an anchor?
A3: It's best to place anchors in the flow of HTML text, inside a layout text box, or inside a table. (You can add a small layout text box to the layout grid to hold the anchor.) You'll get more consistent results if you put the anchor near the left margin of the page. You cannot anchor directly to a graphic because HTML does not yet support this feature; instead, place the anchor near the top left of the graphic.
4:How do you add an action to a link?
A4: To add an action to a link, you first make a selection and create a link using the New Link button on the toolbar or in the Link tab of the Text Inspector. Then you use the Actions palette to add an action to the link.
5:How do you create a link in a component?
A5: To add a link to a component, you use the same technique as when adding other links, but you must first open the component file. When a component is updated, all the files that refer to it are also updated to pick up the change.
6:What is the difference between relative and absolute pathnames? Why is this difference significant for links?
A6: Absolute URLs include the complete pathname of a file, including the site folder name. Relative URLs don't include the full pathname and can refer to a file in a subdirectory from which the file is linked. When you browse for the link destination or enter the URL, you can enter just the relative path (with the site folder name implied). By default, GoLive is aware of the site folder, so you don't need to enter it in the URL.
7:What is an image map? How do you create one?
A7: Image maps are images with hotspots. You can link image maps to other resources and connect the hotspots in the map to other scripted actions such as forms or mailing addresses. To create an image map, you insert an image in your document, specify the image as an image map using the More tab in the Image Inspector, and add hotspots using the map tools on the toolbar. You then add links to the hotspots as you would any other links.
8:What is the purpose of a link warning?
A8: Link warnings appear as (empty reference!) in the text box in the Link tab of the Inspector (or as bug icons in the site window). Link warnings alert you to files with broken links that require fixing before uploading the files to a Web server.
