    I'm taking a class right now where I have to make a webpage resume...kinda boring and all but 1 of the requirements is to have "at least 2 internal links i.e. anchors and targets" My TA never got around to mentioning how to do this since classes got a little off schedule because of snow days.

    So I was wondering if someone could help me out with the tags for that...I'm not asking for anyone to do the assignment for me just please link me up to a site that explains the tags for making the anchors and targets or try to explain that to me on here.

    i guess she means like

    Code:
    <a href="/cars/honda.html">Honda</a>
    <a href="/boats/boat.html">Boats</a>
    
    Kinda like that

    A remote link would be

    Code:
    <a href="http://www.google.ca">Google</a>

    What should the "target" be?

    Here's how to make it open a new window..

    Code:
    <a href="/path/to/site" target="_blank">Link</a>

    You sure he's not talking about links internal to the page that you are linking from using anchor names and #s??

    ie:

    <a name="here">blah</a>
    <a href="#here">blah</a>

    Internal links, also known as anchor points, eggman and retorq are correct.

    Not entirely true. One page portfolios are pretty common these days and use those effectively :o

    Wow that was pretty quick to get so many replies! Thanks a lot for the link Eggman that exactly what I was looking for!

    Just out of curiosity and I'm not complaining since I like learning stuff like this but why does anyone use HTML when you can just use something like Frontpage and it does it for you in the background? Seems less efficient to do it...probably because I'm such a noob with it though lol.

    because it probably wont (I almost guarantee it wont) pass either of these:

    http://validator.w3.org/
    http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/

    and because frontpage just blows dick, to be blunt about it.

    The best way to learn (or atleast how i did 5 years ago) was downloading templates and playing around with them (in notepad!).

    Remove a section and refresh the page. You notice what affects what and slowly start to understand the structure. Check out w3school and you'll learn a lot of the basic core concepts there.

    It's a real simple language

    <html>
    <head>
    <body>
    <title>
    <h1><h2>
    <p>
    <div>
    <a href>
    <img src>
    <ul><li>

    That's pretty much all the html you need to know nowadays. The rest is pretty much all outdated garbage.

    Learn those and move on to css from there. This is the type of thing you really have to love and want to do to get good at. If all you want to do is be able to setup a simple website, just sign up for a wordpress blog or something. Basic html alone is going to be pretty worthless to you without continuing on into something like php and mysql or asp.net etc.

    Oh no no no we aren't using Frontpage, just notepad and FireFox to see what it actually looks like. I was asking because they said not to use an HTML converter or something like that such as Frontpage and I figured if a converter would save why would people not use the converter.

    It's because you don't learn anything from those applications. People rely heavily and applications like FrontPage and Dreamweaver to generate a lot of the markup for them. Your professor doesn't want you using them because you'll learn more without them.
