8. Linking it with Anchors

Relax... this lesson is quick and easy! In fact, it is just information for you to read...

What is a URL?

The real power of the web is the ability to create hypertext links to related information. That other information may be other web pages, graphics, sounds, digital movies, animations, software programs, contents of a file server, a log-in session to a remote computer, a software archive, or an "ftp" site.

The World Wide Web uses an addressing scheme known as URLs, or Uniform Resource Locators (sometimes also called "Universal Resource Locator"), to indicate the location of such items. These hypertext links, the ones usually underlined in blue, are known as anchors (This should not be news to you as you followed several to get this far!).

In the next lessons we will:

Wow! That sounds like a lot to do! Don't worry -- it is no more complex than what you have done up to this point.

After all, without the hypertext, we would be only calling this "Writing TML" and not Writing HTML
