Task: Exercise 6.3: Creating a Link Menu
Now that you've learned how to create lists and links, you can create a link menu . Link
menus are links on your web page that are arranged in list form or in some other short,
easy-to-read, and easy-to-understand format. Link menus are terrific for pages that are
organized in a hierarchy, for tables of contents, or for navigation among several pages.
Web pages that consist of nothing but links often organize the links in menu form.
The idea of a link menu is that you use short, descriptive terms as the links, with either
no text following the link or with a further description following the link itself. Link
menus look best in a bulleted or unordered list format, but you also can use glossary lists
or just plain paragraphs. Link menus enable your readers to scan the list of links quickly
and easily, a task that might be difficult if you bury your links in body text.
In this exercise, you create a web page for a set of book reviews. This page serves as the
index to the reviews, so the link menu you create is essentially a menu of book names.
