Chapter 4. Links

The humble hyperlink may not raise eyebrows anymore, but the notion that you can easily navigate a whole sea of information, jumping from one piece of information to another with a simple click, is a very recent and powerful invention. Interested in a particular band? Go to http://Yahoo.com, type in the band's name, click to go to its Web site, click to go to the page that lists its upcoming gigs, click to go to the Web site for the club where the band's currently playing, and click to buy tickets.

Although links are a basic part of building pages, and although Dreamweaver, for the most part, shields you from their complexities, they can be tricky to understand. The following section provides a brief overview of links, including some of the technical distinctions between the different types. If you already understand links, or are just eager to start using Dreamweaver, jump to Adding a Link on page 95.
