How did you create the internal links?

When you click on a smiley it takes you farther down the page, how did you do that?

It would be extremely helpful to my entry, if you could tell me enough that I should be able to do it myself I would be very thankful.

To view the page code, try this link: <./>test588279</.>

However, the internal links really just exploit the standard HTML address (A) tag with a NAME which then becomes the reference point for a # directive using that name at the end of the page name.

The bit you want to be able to jump to needs to be given an address label (NAME), eg:

Foot in Mouth


NB It doesn't have to be a header. It could be any text or a picture.

Then the link to jump to that place would be a normal A HREF tag ending in the #name or one of the local GuideML forms including that, eg:

<SMILEY TYPE="footinmouth" H2G2="A588279#footinmouth"/>

to get the picture and link combined. Or for just a text link:

Thank You!
Hope I don't botch it up.

To not botch it up: make sure you use a unique name for each jump location and don't put any silly characters or spaces into them.

Numbers are OK. So should be the underscore character: _
