Navigating Links on a Web Page
The easiest way to move from one Web page to another is to use the hyperlinks that the
authors of Web pages embed in their HTML documents. Web page authors use a word,
phrase, or graphic image as a hyperlink. Sometimes, it is difficult to identify which objects
and text are hyperlinks just by looking at a Web page. Fortunately, when you move the
mouse pointer over a hyperlink in a Web browser, the pointer changes to and the URL of
the Web page is displayed in the status bar. Sometimes, depending on the design of the
page, a ScreenTip will also appear, indicating the purpose of the link or its target destination.
Susan likes the layout of the Web site shown in Figure 8, so you will check out some of
the links provided on the left side of the page.
To navigate Web pages on the bed-and-breakfast Web site:
1. Move your pointer over the link for Rooms until the pointer changes to , and then click
that link. The address for this Web page appears in the Address bar, and the Back button is
active. Figure 9 shows the Rooms page for the Centre Mills Bed and Breakfast.

Trouble? If the Web site you chose in the previous set of steps does not have a Rooms
link, then select another link of interest on the page, such as Rates or Reservations.
2. Click the Back button on the Standard Buttons toolbar to return to the home page for the
bed-and-breakfast. The Back and Forward buttons are now active.
3. Position the pointer on the Forward button on the Standard Buttons toolbar to display informa-
tion about the Rooms page. Clicking the Forward button now would return you to that page.
4. Locate another link on the page, and then click it. The target Web page for the link appears
in the browser window.
