What is Hyperlink & What Hyperlink Does!
A Hyperlink can be a text or image which leads or directs a user to another hypertext document i.e. webpage, website, next/previous sections on the same webpage or to an Email address by just clicking on the Hyperlink by mouse or any other pointing device.
Normally, simple and non-hyperlinked text is in black color (if not formatted by the web developer) and nothing happens by clicking such text and image. Unlike the simple and non-hyperlinked text a Hyperlinked text looks different. It is in blue color and underlined (if not formatted by the web developer). Whenever a user drags mouse pointer over (in technical term hover) a Hyperlinked text or image, the mouse pointer gets changed into a hand shape from a normal arrowshape (on windows). When a user clicks a Hyperlinked text its color also gets changed, normally from blue to maroon, to indicate that the user has already visited this particular link and can skip this for now if he or she wants to.
