Chapter 6. Links and Navigation > Navigation Methods and Tools

Navigation Methods and Tools

Using links involves a lot more than just pointing images and text to other web pages. Named anchors, image maps, and jump menus all provide alternative means of linking. Rollovers and navigation bars make simple graphic links into interactive page elements. And Dreamweaver lets you build them all.

Named Anchors

Isn’t it nice when you visit a website where the designers have taken the time to make links that allow you to navigate within a long page so that you don’t have to scroll up and down to find what you’re looking for? You may have seen this on a FAQ page, where you can click a frequently asked question and read only the answer to that particular question. When you make a link to a specific place in a document—rather than just linking to the document itself—you are creating what’s called a named anchor link.
