Now this HTML Tutorial section of HTML Links will guide how to use and operate
hypertext links: How
to create an html link to another page. Its quite easy to learn how to create
Below html link example is simply open the home page of HTML Tutorial at Global Guide Line:
<A HREF="https://www.globalguideline.com/html">Click Here For Global Guide Line

A stands for Anchor in an html link tag. It begins the link to another page. HREF stands for Hypertext Reference. That's a nice, short
way of saying to the browser, "This is where the link is going to go."
https://www.globalguideline.com/html" is the full address of the html link.
Also notice that the address has an equal sign in front of it and is enclosed in
quotes. Why? Because it's an attribute of the html anchor tag, a command inside of a command. Where it reads
"Click Here For Global Guide Line HTML Tutorial" is where you write the text you want to appear
on the page. What is in that space will appear on the page for the viewer to click. So, write something that denotes the link.
And at the end /A ends the entire link command.
This is what's known as a mailto: html link tag for emailing. It follows the
same coding scheme as the hypertext link above. What this
format does is place blue wording on the
screen that people can click to send you a piece of e-mail.
Pattern of E-Mail link is as under:
<A HREF="mailto:email@example.com">Click Here To Write Web Master at
Global Guide Line</A>
Click Here To Write Web Master at Global Guide Line
Go ahead, click on above link.
You'll get an e-mail dialogue box addressed to me. Then you can write if you want.
The same thing will work for you. Just place your e-mail address in place of
mine following the format above.
Hope this HTML Tutorial section of HTML links will be helpful for you. However, please be very careful when using this, for two reasons:
1. If the person only has a web based email account, and hasn't
configured an email program on their computer (e.g. if you use Hotmail or Gmail
instead of Microsoft Outlook) then it will open their email program for the
first time and try to walk them through setting it up. This isn't a good idea if
they're new to computers
2. There are now little programs called 'bots' which wander round the internet
looking for email addresses to send spam (junk emails) to. If you don't want to
receive them, then one part of this is not publishing your address on the
internet. So think long and hard before you use a mailto on your web page.
