Let your visitors jump to the right spot on your web page by using what is known as a named anchor. You can drop an anchor on your page using the Named Anchor object found in the Common Category of the Insert bar. Give the anchor a name that is alphanumeric—lowercase, no spaces, and not starting with a number. As long as Invisible Elements are enabled (View > Visual Aids > Invisible Elements should be checked), you will see a little anchor icon on your page. You can click and drag the icon to wherever you want in the document. You can save yourself not only time, but typos too, if you use the point-to-file method to link to your named anchors. To manually link to a named anchor, add an octothorpe to the end of the filename plus the name you gave the anchor. For example:

Figure7.17Figure 7.17
