hotlink /hot'link/ /n./ A hot spot on a World Wide Web
page; an area, which, when clicked or selected, chases a URL.
Also spelled `hot link'. Use of this term focuses on the link's
role as an immediate part of your display, as opposed to the
timeless sense of logical connection suggested by web
pointer. Your screen shows hotlinks but your document has web
pointers, not (in normal usage) the other way around.
