The HTML tag used to create links using the format:
<a href=”link.html”>Anchor Text</a>
The HREF attribute defines the location the link points to.
Although not recommended, an empty anchor tag is often defined to allow a link to target a particular location within a page. For example if, on the page link.html, you have the following anchor:
a link to link.html#go_here will point directly to the location of the anchor within the page link.html.
Note: Using an empty anchor tag to create a target location is not recommended. Instead you can link directly to any named (defined by an id attribute) HTML object within a page.
