What is a Hyperlink? [1/13]
A hyperlink usually looks like an underlined piece of text; when you click on it, you can jump to another page, open an image or begin to download a file. So, if we imagine the World Wide Web as a huge network of many-many nodes, hyperlinks would be threads connecting all the nodes together.
Hyperlinks are created with a very simple and short tag called
<a>. For example, here is a hyperlink to our site:
<a href="http://htmlacademy.org">HTML Academy</a>
- Use the
<a>tag to create two more hyperlinks containing some text. Please do not add any attributes to the tags yet.
