Hyper links are used to link different pages within a site and outside a site to each other. Same thing can be achieved by using a button. We can use a button to link different pages. We will connect the url of the new page to the onclick event of the button. We can do this by using a form and a submit button but there is no point in using a form for a hyper linking of pages. So here are some examples of using buttons to link different pages.
<input type=button onClick="location.href='../'" value='click here to visit home page'>
<input type=button onClick="parent.location='http://www.plus2net.com/'" value='click here to visit home page'>
