What a URL is

The story so far

A user clicks on a link to a page, say to rosie.html. The browser asks for the file, gets it, and renders the HTML it receives.

The file the browser asks for can be local, that is, on the same computer as the browser. Usually, though, the file is remote, on a server somewhere on the internet.

Good stuff

Make a page with on-page and external links.
