The HTML link is the tool by which all the navigation on the Internet is performed.
By the link, you can go from one resource to another, from one page to another, and also to navigate a separate page from one element to another.
To create a link, use the <a> tag. It is paired, built-in, so it can be placed in any part of the text, in a picture or label.
In HTML, there are three kinds of links.
1. Hyperlink – The main Internet link. It moves from one web page to another. In HTML it goes like this
Link Code <a href="https://starper55plys.ru" >Old pepper's blog</a>

c) Old pepper’s blog – linked page name;
The hyperlink accepts the following attributes:
target=”_blank” – linked page will open in a new browser tab;
title=”Old pepper’s blog” – when you hover your mouse over the link, a window will appear with the text that you will write in this attribute. Usually this is the name of the linked page.
