Per M$ Manual of Style, "hyperlink" and "link" are acceptable; "hot link" is
not, and there is no hyphenation.

It's not the Bible, but I always use it as a reference when I'm unsure of
what a common usage is.



>>I've always preferred to use the term link when describing text you can
click on to jump to another area. In our documentation, we also have
hyperlink (and hyper-link) and hot link (or hot-link). Is there any
justification for using these terms instead of just plain link?
