How do I use an anchor tag?

Anchor <A> ... </A>


Definition:

Provides a clickable link to another webpage or a specific point within a document.

Attributes:

ACCESSKEY="TEXT" ; CHARSET="TEXT" ; COORDS="X1,Y1,X2,Y2,ETC.." ; HREF="URL" ; NAME="TEXT" ; REL="TEXT" ; REV="TEXT" ; SHAPE="(RECT|CIRCLE|POLY|DEFAULT)" ; TABINDEX="NUMBER" ; TARGET="WINDOW".

Suggested usage:

Anchors should be the innermost elements in nested markup. However, you cannot nest anchors within other anchors. A closing tag is required.

Example:

<A HREF="http://www.html-tips.com" target="_blank">Html-Tips.com</A>
