           Summary: Avoid HTML links label with "here" only instead of a
                    more descriptive text
           Product: www.kde.org
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Gentoo Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kde-www at kde.org
        ReportedBy: fischer at unix-ag.uni-kl.de

Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.6.5) 
OS:                Linux

This is a general request for writing text for webpages. IMHO it makes it more
difficult to find links when quickly browsing through page if links are labeled
only with "here" (or "read this") instead of a more descriptive text.

Example: http://www.kde.org/support/mailinglists/
In the first paragraph, it reads "A full list can also be found _here_" where
"here" is a link to the full list. As it happened, in my case there was a line
break in the middle of the sentence, so that I overlooked the link when
searching for the complete list of mailing lists.
Instead, the sentence should have been formulated like: "For a complete
overview, see the _full list of all maining lists_."

If you (as the web designer/editor team) have a "best practice" list, I would
recommend to add this tips.

Looking forward to see the webpage improving further. Keep up the (otherwise)
good work!

Reproducible: Didn't try

Expected Results:  
Descriptive text for HTML links.
