6. HTML Hypertext links

Normally, regular hypertext links are not used in Interchange pages. These kinds of links will not include the session ID. If the customer follows an external link back to the catalog, the list of products ordered so far will have been lost. The area tag is used to generate a hypertext link which includes a session ID.

Instead of:

   <A HREF="/cgi-bin/catlink/shirts">Shirts</A>


   <A HREF="[area shirts]">Shirts</A>
