The anchor tags <A> and </A> are used to activate hypertext linking. The text placed between these tags will be visible in your page and is formatted differently.

When a reader clicks on the formatted linked text, they are taken to the page that is defined in the opening tag's HREF (Hypertext REFerence) attribute - this identifies the URL of the file that the link points to.

Till now we have linked from one page to another, it is also possible to link within the webpage to another point on the same page or specific point within another document.

Note also that anchor names are case sensitive - type exactly the same.

To create the anchor:
<A NAME="anchorName">Anchored text</A>

<A HREF=#anchorName>link to anchored text</A>
To link to anchor from another document:

Generally , the web browser will assume the file is in the current directory/folder. You can use relative or absolute pathnames if file is in another directory/folder.

To link link photo or file in root directory:
SRC="../picture/photoname.gif"  or use full pathname SRC="C:\Picture/photoName.jpg"

To link a Photo on the web:
SRC=<"http://www.photobucket/photoName. com">
