Links to Other Sites

To link to a site other than your own, you put an absolute URL as the destination href. Here are two examples:

See info <a href="">about
<br />
See the <a href="">World Wide Web
  Consortium</a> home page.

It looks like this (and you may want to give it a try)

See info about KeyPoint.
See the World Wide Web Consortium home page.

Important: Although browsers don't require you to type http://, you must put it into your href= attribute in order to correctly specify an absolute URL.

Side note: since we didn't give a file name in the second link, the server served up its default file.
