Anchor Element


I don't understand how to use the anchor element. Can someone explain to me how to do it?


An empty anchor element would have an opening tag and a matching closing tag and that would look like this:

<a> </a>

but that isn't very useful. The usefulness of an anchor link is that it allows you link to another URL. So let's add one. We use the href attribute to do this.

<a href=""> </a>

The final thing that we need to add now is some text between the opening and closing tags. This text will be visible on our web page, like this:

<a href="">Wikipedia</a>

To someone viewing a web page that contains that anchor element, they will see this: Wikipedia
