DO's And DON'Ts

Don’t include preceding articles (a, an, the, our) when you link text. For example:

If a link comes at the end of a sentence or before a comma, don’t link the punctuation mark.

Don’t say things like “Click here!” or “Click for more information” or “Read this.” Write the sentence as you normally would, and link relevant keywords.

If your link takes the reader to an external site (away from the GT Services site), don't open the site in the same browser tab. Configure the link to open the site in a new browser tab by using the "edit link" tool in your editor. Select the "Target" dropdown menu and select between "None" and "New Window".

If using the "New Window" option, type "(opens in a new tab)" next to your link text. This assists users with screen readers and informs them if a link will open in a new tab.

  • None (implicit): the link will open in the existing window or tab

  • New Window (_blank): the link will open in a new tab

  • Same Frame (_self): same as "None"

  • Top Frame (_top): ignore as Frames are deprecated in HTML5

  • Other (custom frame): ignore as Frames are deprecated in HTML5
