Hello,

I am totaly new to HTML.
1. I built few pages. On one page I have a button, I want to add an event that when I click this button another page opens.
I know I need to use OnClick event but how to add a link to another page?

2. And where can I find examples for how to do such things?  like windows.status="  "...

THANKS

One way to link to a URL is
<input type=button onClick="location.href='index.html'" value='click here'>

As far as examples go you can try looking at the pages below as well as their associated pages

onclick uses Javascript which can be disabled in the user's browser and is sometimes hard to use...

HTML has a built in way to go to a different page. The Anchor tag <a> is a link.

<a href="http://google.com">this is link txt</a>

The above will show you "this is link txt", and when you click on it you will be taken to http://google.com
