Anchor Object

The Anchor object represents an HTML hyperlink.

For each <a> tag in an HTML document, an Anchor object is created.

An anchor allows you to create a link to another document (with the href attribute), or to a different point in the same document (with the name attribute).

You can access an anchor by using getElementById(), or by searching through the anchors[] array of the Document object.
