Summary of Attributes

HREF makes an anchor a hypertext link. It is used with an anchor name, filename, or Uniform Resource Locator.
NAME assigns an identifier to a piece of text which can then be linked to by other anchors.
TITLE is an optional attribute which is supported by some browsers. It specifies that the contents of the <TITLE> tag in the HEAD of a target document can be displayed before a user loads the entire document.
Other attributes less commonly used include URN (Uniform Resource Number), METHODS, and the proposed REL and REV. Uniform Resource Numbers will become more common as the URN standard (see PURLs) is finalized, and may replace URL in the future.
