College News Site

The clients needed something that was going to be visually appealing to students, and perform well on budget hosting. Being such […]

Advanced Links

So, I’ve spent most of the day with my good friend, Mr. Anchor Tag, and I thought I would share something I have learned about him today. Primarily… Slashes Matter Quick, what is the difference between <a href=”page.html”> and <a href=”/page.html”> ? It’s totally the beginning slash (/) before “page”. But does this make a difference?
