/** @brief This interface represents hyperlinks.

 This interface represents a hyperlink associated with a single substring 
  of text or single non-text object.  Non-text objects can have either a 
  single link or a collection of links such as when the non-text object is 
  an image map.

 Linked objects and anchors are implementation dependent. This interface is 
  derived from IAccessibleAction.  IAccessibleAction::nActions indicates the 
  maximum value for the indices used with the methods of this interface.
        
 Furthermore, the object that implements this interface has to be connected 
  implicitly or explicitly with an object that implements IAccessibleText.
  IAccessibleHyperlink::startIndex and IAccessibleHyperlink::endIndex are
  indices with respect to the text exposed by IAccessibleText.
