I'm not sure I titled this question correctly. Let me explain what I want to do. I want to be able to email a url for it to show a description. Say I want to send the yahoo home page but it should only show "Here is the Yahoo page" but behind this will exist the url so when the person clicks on it it will take them to the url.

What does this mean?  can you give me an example? I am using Thunderbird and when I tried what you wrote in the previous post (<a href="www.yahoo.com">Here is the Yahoo page </a>) it didn't work, everything appeared, not just the text which would have been "Here is the Yahoo page"
