Jeremy, Thanks for this info. However, I have one question: Since I'm not generating the target document (HTML or CHM), how will I know the anchor to specify in the Hypertext command?

From what >I see, I can only do xrefs to another FM document. That's correct. Frame xrefs are only for use with other Frame docs. However, you can use Frame hypertext links to anything. To do that, you would place a Frame marker of type Hypertext with content like: message URL ./path/filename.htm#anchor for a file in a subdirectory below the Frame file. You need to specify a path that will be valid from the HTML produced for the Frame file. To mark the hotspot for the link, apply a char format (which can be all "as is") to the hotspot text; the marker must also be within the span of the char format. See the Frame docs for more on the many kinds of hypertext markers available. HTH! -- Jeremy H.
