An anchor tag (
a) is used to define a link, but you also need to add something to the anchor tag — the destination of the link.
Add this to your document:
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>My first web page</title> </head> <body> <h1>My first web page</h1> <h2>What this is</h2> <p>A simple page put together using HTML</p> <h2>Why this is</h2> <p>To learn HTML</p> <h2>Where to find the tutorial</h2> <p><a href="http://www.htmldog.com">HTML Dog</a></p> </body> </html>
The destination of the link is defined in the
href attribute of the tag. The link can be absolute, such as “http://www.htmldog.com”, or it can be relative to the current page.
So if, for example, you had another file called “flyingmoss.html” in the same directory then the line of code would simply be
<a href="flyingmoss.html">The miracle of moss in flight</a> or something like this.
A link does not have to link to another HTML file, it can link to any file anywhere on the web.
