xHTML and CSS Glossary – Attribute

“Attribute” applies to xHTML. Attributes come in two parts, the name and the value.

In xHTML, an attribute name/value pair would look something like this:


href is the attribute name, while the link to Google is the attribute value. When used inside an anchor link (<a>), it would look something like this:

<a href="">Google</a>

xHTML attribute names are followed by an equal sign (=), and the attribute value must be surrounded by a pair of either single or double quotes.

href='' (with the single quotes) would work as well.
