Links also use a container tag: the <A> tag. However, you need to stick an HREF in the opening tag... I'll show you. This is a link to the file index.html:
<A HREF="index.html">This text will be a link</A>
And now for the details...
"HREF" is an attribute. An attribute is something you put in a tag to alter the tag's function. (In container tags attributes only appear in the opening tag.) The HREF attribute of the <A> tag sets the page that the link will link to. It can be either a local file, as in the above example, or a complete URL, as in this link to AltaVista. Local links are local to the directory that the page is located in. That's it for basic linking.
