  • Makes something (text, image) "active"; clicking loads other page, image, whatever.

  • <a href="url">something</a>

  • Relative: <a href="foo.html">foo</a> (relative to current page's location)

  • Rooted: <a href="/~pmurphy/">me</a>; protocol, hostname from current URL

  • If linking to directory, include final "/" as it saves time.

  • Basic protocols: http://, ftp://, mailto:, file:/// (local).

  • Blue border around images by default; <img border="0"> to hide:
