Computer Programming Language for the Iliterati

Written by Anchor HREF on . Posted in Homepage

For most people, even if they spend 120 hours per week on their computers, the jargon, abbreviations, and acronyms of which computer programmer are so fond might as well be Sumerian cuneiform. Unless one has received formal training in computer language, or spent a significant amount of time training from books or websites, phrases such as anchor HREF, HREF tags, HREF tag syntax, base HREF tag, and so on are meaningless. At least with the normal English language, individual words are meaningful separately, and thus, when strung together, at least some sort or interpretation or meaning can be deduced with minimum linguistic analysis. With computer terms and abbreviations such as anchor HREF and HREF title tag, it is almost impossible to parse out any kind of meaning for those people who are uninitiated into computer language.

While it is virtually impossible to find a productive citizen who cannot find something to praise about computers, there are few who even want to bother to know about the science and language that make computers and the internet possible. In fact, people who are not literate in any computer programming language, are often intimidated when they hear people discussing a HREF, HTML, anchor HREF, and all of that good stuff. However, in places of employment where those who are literate in computer programming language brush elbows with the lowly programming iliterati, it can be scary for those who do not enjoy being relegated to ignorance. Fortunately, for those ambitious or curious individuals who want to learn at least something about the more widely used computer programming terms, such as HTML, HREG tags, or anchor HREF, there are several user friendly guides available online that will make it as clear as a chocolate milkshake, or at least a root beer float.

Naturally, some people are more comfortable in their ignorance than others. As such, when it comes to computers, as long as their machine works, and there is someone available to fix it in the event that it does not, they could not give two hoots about the difference between anchor HREF and HREG tags. For Type A personalities, however, nothing can drive them to insanity more quickly than feeling ignorant and marginalized. Fortunately, those people need not feel hopeless in their strife, for the first steps to computer programming literacy, and knowing the different between anchor HREF and HREG, is just a few clicks away.

To Anchor or Not to Anchor a HREF

Have you been told that your site would be better with the addition of some HTML, possibly in the form of an anchor tag href? If you are new to the use of HTML, then that statement might not make much sense to you, so here is some help. An anchor tag is the coding which surrounds elements that define a link to some destination on your website. Within an anchor tag you will have the href, which indicates where the link will connect to. For example, my href will be a link address to a page on my website, and it will sit within an anchor tag.

  • Anchor a href tag.
  • To anchor a href you must either have an href that is a full link url, or a reference to a specific point on a web page. A specific point might be a heading in an article, or a picture, or a specific paragraph of content. When you anchor a href, you can use a hashtag to indicate the exact spot on the page that you are creating the link to.

  • Anchor without href.

Four Reasons to Build a Business Website With HTML

In the highly competitive marketplace of today, almost all businesses need to have a website and some sort of web presence that allows consumers to find more information and possibly make a purchase. However, it can be difficult to build a website, especially for owners and managers who have experience in an area other than web design. While there are lots of templates and previously made skins that businesses can use, some might want to use HTML so that they can include custom href anchors and use unique href tag syntax. Though coding might require a bit more work, there are several advantages to using HTML rather than a simple template.

HTML is Free

Though a business who builds a website will have to pay for their domain, HTML is free to use. Not having to buy a template or register with a web development service can help save lots of money, which is vital for businesses who have limited marketing budgets. And, anything that allows the free use of href anchors and Continue reading…

Why Use Anchor Text?

The Internet is constantly evolving. Methods and mechanisms we took for granted just a few years ago are being replaced, upgraded, modified, or done away with completely. While keeping up with the changing landscape can be a challenge, it can help to remember that nearly every change the World Wide Web experiences is designed to make things easier on the user, the programmer, the search engines, or all three at once.

For example, href anchors are a response to the otherwise cumbersome inclusion of full web addresses in the middle of paragraphs of text, a practice which was not only unwieldy and unattractive, but also oftentimes prohibitive, since some web addresses can contain incredibly long strings of random characters. Anchor text allows an otherwise complicated and lengthy web address to fit nicely into your copy without breaking u the flow of your words.

The code that creates an anchor text tag follows a specific order, called the “A href tag syntax”. An “A” tag results in a hyp Continue reading…

HTML Can Be Confusing Scary Even But As Soon As You Learn the Language, It Is Fun and Exciting To Play With

Anyone can write a blog. That is not special anymore. Even my mom has a blog, and she cannot figure out how to turn on her computer half of the time. No, to make your blog and website stand out, you need to expand. You need to learn new things to manipulate the site, and make it stand out above all of the rest in the sea of generics. Perhaps it is time you learned to use HTML code. A simple trick that can make all the difference in site usage and appearance is a HREF anchor. HREF anchors are used to jump to a new location on the same page, by clicking on a link to send them there.

Code writers have been using the anchor tag HREF forever. It really is nothing new in terms of code. But using it creatively and effectively can still make an impression on your website viewer. Perhaps an example of when you would anchor a HREF is in order, as it took until I had it laid out in front of me to properly understand it as well.
