The LINK element defines a relationship between the current document and another resource. Although LINK has no content, the relationships it defines may be rendered by some user agents. This information may be spoken by a user agent, rendered as a tool tip, cause a change in cursor image, etc. Thus, we may augment a previous example by supplying a title for each link:.

Since links may point to documents encoded with different character encodings , the A and LINK elements support the charset attribute.

This attribute allows authors to advise user agents about the encoding of data at the other end of the link. The hreflang attribute provides user agents with information about the language of a resource at the end of a link, just as the lang attribute provides information about the language of an element's content or attribute values. Armed with this additional knowledge, user agents should be able to avoid presenting "garbage" to the user. Instead, they may either locate resources necessary for the correct presentation of the document or, if they cannot locate the resources, they should at least warn the user that the document will be unreadable and explain the cause.

Search engines use link text to index target files, so it is a good idea to include keywords in your link text to effectively describe what is being linked to. Visual readers skim over the page rather than reading every word, and their eyes will be drawn to page features that stand out, like links.

They will find descriptive link text useful. Don't say "link" or "links to" in the link text — it's just noise. Screen readers tell people there's a link.Instead, they may either locate resources necessary for the correct presentation of the document or, if they cannot locate the resources, they should at least warn the user that the document will be unreadable and explain the cause.
