A hyperlink is a connection from one page to another destination such as another page or a different location on the same page. The destination is frequently another Web page, but it can also be a picture, an e-mail address, a file (such as a multimedia file or Microsoft Office document), or a program. A hyperlink can be text or a picture.  When a site visitor clicks the hyperlink, the destination is displayed in a Web browser, opened, or run, depending on the type of destination. In the following example, the Name Edward Watts, Sr. is a hyperlink; when the site visitor clicks it, his family page is displayed.
