HTML Links - Hyperlinks

Hyperlinks are one of the most exciting innovations the Web has to offer. It allow us to link documents to other documents or resources, link to specific parts of documents, or make apps available at a web address.

We can create links in HTML if we use anchor elements. The anchor tags are these <a> and </a> tags. A link does not have to be text. A link can be an image or any other HTML element.

					<a href="url">Some Text</a>


The following about one attribute that will tell the browser how to open the link we have clicked. This attribute name is called target.

					<a href="url" target="_blank">With Target Attribute</a>


The target attribute will tell the browser where to open the linked document.

  • _blank - It will tell the browser to open the link in a new window or tab.
  • _self – It will open the linked document in the same frame as it was clicked or this is the default action of the anchor tag.
  • _top – It will open the linked document in the full body of the window
  • _parent – It will open the linked document in the parent frame
