Too much coffee.

[ Did you notice that this is neither
a Java, nor an HTML group? ]

Bwa-ha-ha! I don't think you should become a comedy writer though.

Hyper text has links in it that you can click on to get you to another
page. Hpper is the <a> tag.

How is it a Java question? And assuming it is a Java question,
why are you asking it in a Javascript newsgroup? And assuming
this is the correct place to ask such a question, do you really
think "Java question" is the most descriptive subject you could
come up with to describe your query?
