Jquery DOM Manipulation

The jQuery function (usually aliased as $) can be used both to select elements and to create new elements.

var myLink = $('<a href=""></a>');

You can optionally pass a second argument with element attributes:

var myLink = $('<a>', { 'href': '' });

'< a >' --> The first argument specifies the type of DOM element you want to create. In this example it's an anchor but could be anything on this list. See the specification for a reference of the a element.

{ 'href': '' } --> the second argument is a JavaScript Object containing attribute name/value pairs.
The 'name':'value' pairs will appear between the < > of the first argument, for example < a name:value > which for our example would be
< a href="">< /a>
