HTML help

so on my web site i added a link to smoothwall.org here is my code for it

<a href="www.smoothwall.org">Smoothwall</a> is a great software based on Linix for SPI FW.

ok so on my site when i save it, i point on the link to see where it is pointing to and it reads

"Http://home.comcast.net/~lt72884/site/www.smoothwall.org"

how the heck did that end up in there..

EDIT.

DC does not like my address. it turned it from the link to the word COMCAST...

You need to have the fully qualified URL in there, you need to add http:// in front of the address.

You cannot abbrevite in HTML like you can when typing the URL in the browser.

Here is a great site for HTML reference W3Schools Online Web Tutorials

Yes, by default it was looking at your local site directory to try and find something named that since it was trying to link to it.

If you leave off the http:// (or ftp:// or mailto: or ...) it's treated as a local link.
