Inserting Text Hyperlinks

A text hyperlink is one of the most basic forms of a navigation link. It is simply a hyperlink applied to text. When an end user clicks the hyperlink in the output, the location specified in the hyperlink opens. The location can be another topic in the project (including a bookmark within that topic), a topic in an imported HTML Help file, or a file outside of the project (such as a website on the Internet). In general, text hyperlinks are recommended for links that point to locations outside of your project (e.g., to a website), whereas cross-references are recommended for links that point to other locations within the project (e.g., from one topic to another).
