We’re now pretty far along into the web-based world, and you would think that most people would recognize what a “link” is. However, it appears that a debate is still raging on as to whether or not web-based writing should include the specific call to “click here” when linking to some other webpage. While it’s been a common practice in web advertising, trying to entice people to click on an ad, it probably doesn’t make very much sense any more in standard web writing. People know what a link is. They know that they can click on it if they want to. Maybe some people just like ordering others around — even online.
