The Internet

How the Web Works

The World Wide Web uses hypertext to link to documents and files located on servers anywhere on the Internet. A hypertext document contains words, phrases, or images that are highlighted and point to a different document where more information can be found. The user can click the highlighted word, phrase, or picture to display the document. The paws that you see below are hypertext, clicking on them either takes you forward or backward in this tutorial.
