Thanks to all for your answers!  

Doug ... so in other words, in the following example:

"gotolink ../CHAP02/ER_SEC02_03.fm:sec231"   (Where sec231 is a newlink marker 
in that document...)

Frame would creake a link in the pdf file to a file named:  "ER_SEC02_03.pdf "?

Would it do anything with the newlink marker (would it try to find that marker 
in the document for the exact link location?... ie - would it create the link 
to the newlink marker "sec231" within the ER_SEC02_03.pdf  ?)
