Hyperlinks are the heart of the World Wide Web, enabling users to move to any page available on the Web by clicking a hot spot that may be attached to a text string or an image. Typically, links point to another HTML page that may be on the same site (in the same physical or virtual directory tree on one server) or another site.

Hyperlinks are created using the anchor (<a>) tag, and the most important attribute is the href (hypertext reference), which defines the document to which the link points. Any text or images inside the start and closing anchor tags is the hot spot.
