Information

Creating links to other documents, files, images and web-pages can add depth and visual interest to web-content. Used appropriately, it can quickly signpost the reader to additional key information and engage the reader. Links can be created manually or by using the Sitebuilder tool ‘Links picker.’ A good principle of web-design is that hyperlinks are used sparingly and on key words that you would expect to be linked.
