hi everybody

How do i provide links to a section of a page from the same page.
say from the top of page a link to the bottom of the page.
How do i identify that particular bottom section of the page.
and use it as a link above in the same page.
suppose i have provided links to a separate page. how do i force that particular page on a different browser window.
and how do i control the size of that particular new window .

First start with the spot you want people to be transported to. Pick a word and wrap it in the <A> tags.
<A>Add</A> the URL and you're done!

Next give that spot a NAME.
<A NAME="upabit">Add</A> the URL and you're done!
What you have done is marked that spot. Now it can be referenced.

Now start building the link.
Click <A>here</A> to be magically transported...

Add the document to be referenced...
Click <A HREF="lesson04.html">here</A> to be magically transported...

And lastly, add the anchor NAME like so...
Click <A HREF="lesson04.html#upabit">here</A> to be magically transported...
And that's all there is to it! Not exactly brain surgery is it??
