Chapter 23. Making Links

Links are one of the great mysteries of Web authoring. Everything else is up front and visible; everything else just has to look right. A link, on the other hand, has to do something ”it has to act right. Links are mysterious because what they do when they are activated is not immediately visible to the naked eye.

Fortunately, creating links is surprisingly simple. The only tricky part is correctly phrasing the underlying URL. With an eye toward the real linking pitfalls, this chapter shows what links are all about.


This chapter assumes that you have already installed Netscape Communicator 4.7 and its built-in Web-authoring program, Composer. If you have not, visit and download Netscape Communicator version 4.7 for your system. (It's free.)

More recent versions of Netscape and Composer are available, as well. Although the exact steps for some features may differ slightly, you'll have little difficulty finding your way around a newer version of Composer using the material in this book.
