What is the difference between linking to an image, a website, and an email address?

February 20, 2014

    • To link an image, use <img> tags. You need specify the image in quotes using the source attribute, src in the opening tag. For hyperlinking, the anchor tag, <a>, is used and the link is specified in the href attribute. Text to be hyperlinked should be placed between the anchor tags. Little known fact: href stands for “hypertext reference.” When linking to an email, thehref specification will be “mailto:send@here.com.” See examples below:
<img src=”HTMLrocks.jgp”></img>
<a href=”www.skilledup.com”>Skilledup</a>
<a href=”brad@skilledup.com”>Email Me</a>
