Creating a Button with a Hyperlink

Description

There are two ways to create a button with a hyperlink.

  • with a form, which will work in all circumstances

  • with JavaScript, which requires that the user have JavaScript enabled

 Form Solution

<html>
<head>
<meta name="generator" content="Alpha Five HTML Editor">
<title></title>
</head>
<body>
<form action="nextpage.a5w">
<input type="submit" value="Click Here to Continue">
</form>
</body></html>

 JavaScript Solution

<html>
<head>
<meta name="generator" content="Alpha Five HTML Editor">

</head>
<body>
<input name="continue" type="button" id="continue" value="Click Here to Continue" onclick="window.location='nextpage.a5w'">
