Attributes provide additional information about HTML elements.
HTML links are defined with the <a> tag. The link address is specified in the href attribute:
Attribute values should always be enclosed in quotes.
Double style quotes are the most common, but single style quotes are also allowed.
Tip: In some rare situations, when the attribute value itself contains quotes, it is necessary to use single quotes: name='John "ShotGun" Nelson'
Attribute names and attribute values are case-insensitive.
However, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) recommends lowercase attributes/attribute values in their HTML 4 recommendation.
Newer versions of (X)HTML will demand lowercase attributes.
A complete list of legal attributes for each HTML element is listed in our: HTML Tag Reference.
Below is a list of some attributes that can be used on any HTML element:
|class||Specifies one or more classnames for an element (refers to a class in a style sheet)|
|id||Specifies a unique id for an element|
|style||Specifies an inline CSS style for an element|
|title||Specifies extra information about an element (displayed as a tool tip)|
