Links allow you to direct the user to different pages on your site, or to different sites on the internet.
Links use the
<a> tag and
href attribute in order to work. An example of
linking to google is
If you want to link to a page in your site, include all the link after your
domain, including the slash. For example, if you look at the address bar for
this page it says
https://initoss.dev/learn_code/HTML/4-Links, so all you need
to include is
/learn_code/HTML/4-Links like this
If you instead want to link relative to where you are, start the URL with a dot.
For example, if there was a page under this one called
relative, using the
would link there.
Images are inserted into HTML using the
<img> tag The source of the image is
passed in using the
src attribute, like in the following example
<img src="image.png" alt="Image description" />
alt is provided for if the image can’t be found and for accessibility. An
example of why it might not be found is that you are using an image from a
remote site and the site has gone down.
As for accessibility, people who use screen readers will be read the
so it is important for them that it is descriptive.
