In Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), an anchor is the establishing of a term, phrase, image, or other information object as being either:
- The target of a hypertext link within a document, or
- A reference (a link you can select) to such a target
Note that any HTML file name is automatically an anchor or target that can be linked to. An anchor WITHIN a file to which you can link directly is identified by the # sign followed by the name.
