Secret link


You can put links on pages that don't look like links. When users hover over them, the mouse cursor doesn't show a pointer.

They're secret links. If you know about them, you can click on them. If you don't know about them, there's no reason to click.

See the link? No?

Here's the last bit of HTML:

  Fly accelerative like a modern teleporter.
  Collectives walk with pressure! The star
  <a href="">is</a> more planet
  now than astronaut, ordinary and quickly ugly.

The word "is" on the last line is a link.


Here's some CSS:

a {
    color: black;
    text-decoration: none;
    cursor: text;

People use this sometimes to hide links to, for example, login pages. It doesn't offer real security, but it does make the page look cleaner.
