Hi All,

I have got my first problem solved but had to learn a lot more than I wanted to.

Although the attached code looks correct to me, it doesn't work. Can anyone tell me why?


Thanks

Hi smile.gif

It's because NAME doesn't exist as an element. It's an attribute for A. Like this:

HTML
<h2><a name="chp1">Introduction</a></h2>


There's no need to use named anchors anymore though. The browsers that need them are so old now, that you can safely ignore them. You can give the H2 an id and link to it in the way you already do.

HTML
<h2 id="chp1">Introduction</h2>
