A

 [Local Convention]
An anchor is a piece of text or some other object (for example an image icon) which marks the beginning and/or the end of a hypertext link. The <A> element is used to mark that piece of text, and to give its hypertextual relationship to other documents. The text between the opening and closing tags, <a attributes> ...text... </A> can be the start or destination (or both) of a link. Here are some simple examples:
<a href="http://www.edu/st/file.html">bla bla</A>
The string 'bla bla' is a hypertext link to the document 'file.html' located at the indicated URL.
<a href="image.jpeg"> <IMG SRC="icon.gif"> </A>
The image 'icon.gif' is a hypertext link to the image file located in the same directory as the currently accessed document (unless otherwise specified by the BASE element).
<A NAME="frxx">textbla</A>
The string 'textbla' can be the target of a link. This link is referenced via the form "file.html#frxx" where 'file.html' is the file that contains this anchor and '#frxx' is the anchor NAME. If you are already in 'file.html' the file is implicit, so it can be left out.
