Hyperlinks allow references to other places in hypertext. By clicking on hyperlinks, the user can access other pages or documents. In the WWW, links play an important role because they enable the non-linear reception characteristic of the Internet - so-called "surfing". Hyperlinks usually stand out from the general text by their colour and underscore. Graphics and images can also represent links. (Linked page in German.)
