HTML Link Markup 

You can use standard HTML link markup to link between topics in the same compiled Help (.HxS) file, anchor text within a topic, and to sites on the Internet.


The following examples show the basic HTML syntax to use for each type of link.

To link to another topic in the same .HxS file:

<a href = "topic1.htm">Link to Topic 1</a>

To link to anchor text within a topic:

<a href = "#anchor1">Link to anchor 1</a>
<a name = "anchor1">Anchor 1</a>

To link to an Internet URL:

<a href = "">An Internet URL</a>

To link to a Microsoft Help URL:

<a href = "ms-help://myHelpCollection/Topic1.htm">Link to Topic 1 in a namespace called myHelpCollection</a>
