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."" 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.

E-Mail HTML Link From Your Web Page

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:

Notice it's the same format as a link except in a link you write "mailto:" in place of the http:// and your e-mail address in place of the page address. Yes, you still need the </A> tag at the end. Please notice there is NO SPACE between the colon and the e-mail address.

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.
