HTML DOM Anchor Object

Anchor Object

The Anchor object represents an HTML hyperlink.

For each instance of an <a> tag in an HTML document, an Anchor object is created.

An anchor can be used to create a link to another document (with the href attribute) or to create a bookmark inside a document (with the name attribute).

You can access an anchor by searching through the anchors[] array in the Document object, or by using document.getElementById().

IE: Internet Explorer, F: Firefox, O: Opera, W3C: World Wide Web Consortium (Internet Standard).
