6.2. Referencing Documents: The URL

As we discussed earlier, every document on the World Wide Web has a unique address. (Imagine the chaos if they didn't.) The document's address is known as its uniform resource locator (URL).[2]

[2] "URL" usually is pronounced "you are ell," not "earl."

Several tags include a URL attribute value, including hyperlinks, inline images, and forms. All use the same URL syntax to specify the location of a web resource, regardless of the type or content of that resource. That's why it's known as a uniform resource locator.
