Tutorial 27: The Care and Feeding of Hyperlinks, Part III

Putting it into practice

Let's start with a pretty idealized example: A page in a book that is published online. Let's assume we're in page 3, chapter 21, section B in the book. This book will probably be presented in a hierarchical tree structure, with a home page at the top, then several sections, which are subdivided into chapters, which are themselves subdivided into pages. In addition, we have a table of contents, an index, a glossary, a copyright notice and a page assisting users in reading the book. The diagram below illustrates this structure.

This chart shows the structure of a Web site containing  the full text of a book. The green boxes indicate pages, while the  blue lines show the navigation links that start from the  highlighted page.

Putting these links into HTML form, we come up with something like the following:

<LINK REL="Next" HREF="./page4"
 TITLE="MORONS in Action - Chapter 21, Page 4">
<LINK REL="Prev" HREF="./page2"
 TITLE="MORONS in Action - Chapter 21, Page 3">
<LINK REL="Start" HREF="./page1"
 TITLE="MORONS in Action - Chapter 21, Page 1">
<LINK REL="Up" HREF="./"
 TITLE="MORONS in Action - Chapter 21, Introduction">
<LINK REL="Chapter" HREF="./"
 TITLE="MORONS in Action - Chapter 21, Introduction">
<LINK REL="Home" HREF="../../"
 TITLE="MORONS in Action - Home">
