Clicking a link usually loads a web page into the browser window. But what if you want to link not only to a web page, but to a specific spot on that page? See Figure 5-10 for an example.

Type the name of the anchor in the Insert Named Anchor dialog box.
Give each anchor a unique name (something ...
