A link can open a document on your computer or a document on a computer anywhere in the world.
Documents on the Web are known as Web pages and they are limited to text.

HTML 2.0 included additional support for creating and formatting tables and expanded the options for interactive form elements.
An HTML file contains both formatting tags and content.
Tags in an HTML file should be entered using all uppercase letters.
Extra space is required before and after the <body> tags to make your code easier to understand, especially as you add more code and it becomes more complex.

You should be careful to make each id name unique within a document.
You should write a link to an id as:
<a href="#new"><h2>New Material</h2></a>
<h2><a href="#new">New Material</a></h2>
For some Web servers, the case (upper or lower) of the filenames in the href attribute of the <a> tag is important.
Browsers assume that if no folder information is given, the file is in the same folder as the current document.
In some situations, such as when working with large Web sites, you might want to place different files in different folders to help you stay organized.
A tooltip is descriptive text that appears whenever a user positions the mouse pointer over a link.
You link to an id using the id name preceded by a(n) &.
