<a href="www.carnageblender.com">hyperlink text</a>

Lefty July 27 2009 12:22 AM EDT

For the record, you don't need the quotes.

<a href=http://www.google.ca> Link text here </a>

Works the same as

<a href="http://www.google.ca"> Link text here </a>

What is the "link text here" if you put all in the URL section?

Burton July 27 2009 12:45 AM EDT

You can name the hyperlink. Instead of it being the actual URL, you can name it to say click me or something neat.

Such as this elegant and finely crafted link
