Part III: Linking to Stuff > More Ways to Link

Hour 11. More Ways to Link

If Web pages were books and links were a card catalog, targets would be thumbtabs.

Let me explain. Just like a card catalog entry, a link takes you only to a whole document—a Web page—not to any particular place within that document. That makes links great for general-purpose surfing, getting into the general ballpark of what you want.

But sometimes you want to take your visitors not just to a particular page, but also to an exact spot within that page. That's the job of targets. In this hour, you will expand on your linking skills from Hour 10, “Making Links,” learning not only how to create and link to targets, but also how to link to any type of file so that your visitors can download the files you want to offer them.

At the end of the hour, you will be able to answer the following questions:

  • Where and why would I use targets?

  • How do I create a target in a page?

  • How do I make existing text into a target?

  • How do I create a link that takes the visitor to a particular spot within the page he's viewing?

  • How do I create a link that takes the visitor from one page to a particular spot in another page?

  • How do I create links that, when clicked, download a file?
