5.3.35 url : Hyperlink

The url tag is meant to include an URL to an arbitrary web page. It works much like the link tag, except that any URL may be specified. The attribute href specifies the URL to link to. In output formats that support links, the text in the url tag will be the link’s text. For other formats, the URL will be printed after the text.

If the url tag does not enclose any text, then the URL itself will be printed.


The normal usage is:

<url href="http://www.freepascal.org/">Here</url>  
is the website of Free Pascal.

It will be typeset as:

Here is the website of Free Pascal.

The short usage is:

Check out the following site: <url href="http://www.freepascal.org/"/>.

Which will be typeset as:

Check out the following site: http://www.freepascal.org/.
