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?

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.
