Here are a list of links for my website at the following address:
http://www.wingfling.org/wingfling/homeless-links.htm

<ul>
<li><a href="www.nhchc.org">National Health Care for the Homeless Council</a></li>
<li><a href="www.bphc.hrsa.gov/hchirc">Health Care for the Homeless Information Resource Center</a></li>
<li><a href="www.fema.gov">Federal Emergency Management Agency</a></li>
<li><a href="www.nationalhomeless.org">National Coalition for the Homeless</a></li>
<li><a href="www.nlchp.org">National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty</a></li>
<li><a href="www.endhomelessness.org">National Alliance to End Homelessness</a></li>
</ul>

However when clicked it doesn't go where it is supposed to.

For example it goes to
http://www.wingfling.org/wingfling/www.nhchc.org

instead of
www.nhchc.org (which is an outside site not associated with wingfling)

Thanks

What's wrong with my links???

And your question regarding CSS is.....?

:? Have you tried changing them to http://

People must remember that this is a forum for discussion and help with matters regarding specifically CSS not just any old web dev problem , if one does need to ask questions not directly related to CSS there is a specific area set aside.

Moving thread to 'Off Topic'.

Hugo, settle down old bean - if the poster doesn't know enough about HTML to recognise an incomplete link address, he is hardly going to know if his problem has anything to do with CSS or not. Have you taken your chill-pills today Wink

maurices5000 - if you do not precede external link addresses with http:// or https://, the browser will assume it is an internal (to the vhost) link and add the path to the page being called.

Thanks! I didn't know what was going wrong. Previously it was going to yahoo somehow. I don't know how that happened. No one told me i had to have http:// in my url.

Nobody has ever told me anything about web design and programming. Like a lot of people my age, I am entirely self-taught from web tutorials and Googled snippets. It looks to me like you need to read a few tutorials yourself Smile
