> I'm looking for a source to use in a style guide. Given these two options:
> Option A: To learn more about A, see <hyperlink>A</hyperlink>.
> Option B: See <hyperlink>A</hyperlink> to learn more about A.
> I want to specify that Option A is the preferred sentence structure for
> the following reasons:
> 1) it doesn't make the reader choose whether to click the hyperlink or
> finish the sentence.
> 2) if the reader does finish the sentence, the eyes have to go back 5
> words in order to click the hyperlink.
> I can't remember where I read about this. It might have been mentioned in

> Hanson, it's in [source]" please tell me...
> Thank you.
