An interactive reference to an internal or external resource that, when activated, causes the user agent to navigate to that resource. See related button.
If this is a native link in the host language (such as an HTML anchor with an href value), activating the link causes the user agent to navigate to that resource. If this is a simulated link, the web application author is responsible for managing navigation.
Note: If pressing the link triggers an action but does not change browser focus or page location, authors are advised to consider using the button role instead of the link role.
