A link is a connection between two pages. Links are intercepted by Blogspace and added to the database so that Blogspace can do queries on them. Blogspace also supports links that are not included within the textual content of the page, but are added in addition to it. These are added through whatever interface you use to access Blogspace.
There are several different levels of complexity to making a Blogspace link. Here are some examples:
I like <a>french fries</a> a lot.
I like <a href="frenchfries"/> a lot.
I like <a href="historyOfFrenchFries">french fries</a> a lot.
If there's no text in between the <a> tags, then the title of the item being linked to is used as the link text. If there is text then the text is used as the link text. The attributes work as follows:
If you create a link to "index", Blogspace will interpret as a link to the index (main) page of your Blogspace.email@example.com
