how do you "rename" a web link?

I'm not really sure how to ask this and don't know how to do a search for it! lol

example:

Take a look at my picture www.abcdefg.com (not my homepage just made up an example)

changed to:

Take a look at my picture CLICK HERE

I want to do this on some ebay auctions so they can take a look at some info without them clicking a written link to the address..could someone help me on how to do this with safari and/or with ebay?

Thank you in advance to those who can help!

Code:
<a href="http://www.example.com">CLICK HERE</a>
Replace www.example.com with the URL. Just write before it, "Take a look at my picture" then insert the code above.

Well I've never created an Ebay auction, but the HTML for it is as follows. You can try it out, but can't guarantee it.

Take a look at my picture <a href="http://www.abcdefg.com">CLICK HERE</a>

or better yet,

<a href="http://www.abcdefg.com">Take a look at my picture</a>

Yup, it's a basic HTML tag. Did anyone else notice that that "example" goes to Hooked on Phonics?

wow three identical answers

you will probably want to use this code instead so that the image opens up in a new window.

[HTML]<a href="http://www.blah.com/imagename.jpg" target="_blank">Click Me</a>[/HTML]

I was going to include the target/_blank thing, but thought it would be too complicated. While on that topic, you can also use these targets:

"_parent"
"_self"
"_top"

And of course, use your own targets if you happen to be using iFrames.
