I have a list of useful URL's which I have put on to an HTML page for reference.

How can I change the typed text into a hyperlink? So that anyone can click the name and get to the site.

<a href="http://example.com">text to show on screen, which can be http://example.com, among other things</a>

Hmmm... I thought so too, but this one of the most basic HTML tags, is it not?

Exactly my point.

Funny enough,:D I have never had to type it manually before. My editor does it for me. As I was using Notepad and was on my spare PC, I asked for help, which I got very quickly.:thumbsup:
Editors can often be a disadvantage.

OK. A piece of advice is to learn it though. In case you don't have your editor. And if you're able to type it in by memory, you have actually learned it and can show how to do it, to others.

Yes. I realise that editors stop you from learning code. One gets used to accepting the help without learning the code. I shall use notepad++ more from now on.

I found it ridiculous that I was stuck on such a basic piece of code, but I was trying to show a friend how to do it and I felt a right Charlie when I couldn't! I had nothing with me to look it up so I sought the only help I could think of.

At 82 I find my memory less than perfect. I suppose I am a bit too old to learn new tricks, but I enjoy the challenge and the fellowship of the Forum.

I again thank you all for your help and interest. I just wish I was 40 yrs younger.
