Or tell > me a good place to look? > You don't embed LINK in an <a href=...> . There is a <LINK> element which takes all of the same attributes (including href) as the <A> element. The <LINK> element is only supported by a couple of browsers, so there is no good reason to use right now, unless you are writing context-sensitive help for an SCO system. I am currently working on a discussion paper, that will eventually be submitted as an Internet Draft, on the subject of hypertext links in HTML, use of the <LINK> element, REL and REV attribute values and meanings, and suggestions for additional attributes and elements. This paper is currently being reviewed by various members of the HTML Working Group. I will be publishing it to this mail list for broader review real soon now.
