ASP:

<a href="<%=Date()%>.htm">

SSI

<a href="<!--#echo var="DATE_GMT" -->.htm">


Javascript:

<script>
now = new Date();
strDate = getYear(Now) + "-" + getMonth(Now) + "-" + getDate(Now);
document.write('<a href="' + strDate + '.htm">linktext</a>'>
</script>

For example:
http://www.internet.net/(syatem date).htm

How would I write the hyperlink?

I gave you 3 possible ways to do it. It depends on you which one you prefer/are able to use.

SSI and ASP are serverside solutions, and will display the date of the server. The javascript solution will display the date of the client machine.

If you are able to use SSI, I would recommend that, it's the easiest.

<a href="http://www.internet.net/<!--#echo var="DATE_GMT" -->.htm">
