anchor and link object are sub-objects (or properties) of the document object, they represent an HTML hyperlin.
These objects have not methods, only properties.

1. anchor object

The Anchor object represents an HTML <a> tag. This object allows you to create a link to another document (with the href attribute), or to a different point in the same document (with the name attribute).
You can access an anchor by using getElementById(), or by searching through the anchors[] array of the document object.

anchor object properties

- Example with the value returned by some of these properties:
<a href="" title="Courses Web" id="idl" rel="friend" target="_blank" hreflang="us-en">Free Courses</a>
<script type="text/javascript"><!--
document.write('href - '+ document.getElementById("idl").href+ '<br />');
document.write('text - '+ document.getElementById("idl").text+ '<br />');
document.write('hreflang - '+ document.getElementById("idl").hreflang+ '<br />');
document.write('rel - '+ document.getElementById("idl").rel+ '<br />');
document.write('target - '+ document.getElementById("idl").target+ '<br />');
- The output of the code above:
href -
text - Free Courses
hreflang - us-en
rel - friend
target - _blank

2. link object

The link object represents an HTML link element.
A link element (<link>) is defined in the head section of an HTML document and it defines the relationship between two linked documents.
You can access an anchor by using getElementById().

link object properties

- Example with the value returned by some of these properties:
<title>JS object</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" hreflang="us-en" name="stylesheet" id="stl" href="style.css" />
<script type="text/javascript"><!--
document.write('href - '+ document.getElementById("stl").href+ '<br />');
document.write('hreflang - '+ document.getElementById("stl").hreflang+ '<br />');
document.write('rel - '+ document.getElementById("stl").rel+ '<br />');
document.write('name - '+ document.getElementById("stl").name+ '<br />');
- The result is:
href - style.css
hreflang - us-en
rel - stylesheet
name - stylesheet
