Inside a href attribute

In HTML there is elements, attributes, and values. These three concepts will be mentioned a lot throughout the course and knowing what they are will help you describe things better as well.

So, what is an element? Well, an element is the commonly used things such as <body>, <p> or <section>. These and anything like them are known as elements.

Attributes are what we place inside of elements to add more to our code whether its for screen readers, search engines, or anything else. These are things like id, class or name.

Then lastly, values. The values are applied to the attributes like so: id="example-id", class="example-class" or name="example-name".

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).

HI @cgbill97 !

Welcome to the forum!

This is the opening anchor tag

<a href="https://freecatphotoapp.com">

the target attribute goes inside there

Hope that helps!

To be more clear on this I will provide some examples:

<p id="example-id">This is a <p> element with the attribute of id and value of "example-id".</p>
<section class="example-class">This is a <section> element with the attribute of class and value of "example-class"

Hopefully these two examples provide more explanation for you on this topic.
