    You may use the relative and the absolute linking as well.
    The relative linking looks like this <a href="/" >home page</a> while the
    absolute contains the URL of the actual home page so <a
    href="hxxp://yourdomain.com">home page</a>

    Well, actually, that's a root relative link as opposed to a doent
    relative link, but this is really not what the original poster was asking, I
    think.

    To link one page to another page, you select the text or image that is to be
    used for the link, and use the folder icon on the Property inspector to
    browse to, and select, the desired target page. This will create a
    hyperlink around that text or image such that when you view the page in the
    browser, and then click on the text or image, you will be taken to the
    target page.

    There are actually three kinds of links -

    1. Doent relative links
    2. Root relative links
    3. Absolute links

    The can look like this, respectively, when you examine the code for a link
    from a page in the 'products folder' to a page that is in the root level of
    the site -

    <a href="../whatever.html"
    <a href="/whatever.html"
    <a href="http://www.example.com/whatever.html''

    The first two types of links can be created using the method I described
    above. To create the third type of link, you'd have to manually enter the
    code.

    Why would you want to use an absolute link rather than the two kinds of
    relative links? For most purposes, you would not....
