    <a href="http://org.recdesk.com/recdeskportal......pdf" style="color:red;text-decoration:underline" target="_new">Handbook</a>

    where

    • http://org.recdesk.com/recdeskportal......pdf is the Url of the page you'd like to link to (you can get this by clicking on the tab of your browser where the page is displayed, highlighting and copying the url to the clipboard (Url is in the address bar and starts with  http));

    • color:red is the color of the text;

    • text-decoration:underline underlines the text;
