How to link to another section of your webpage from within the document:

1. First place your curser where ever you desire the link to bring you.

2. Type in the "anchor name"* box a word related to your particular link. In the "index title" box type the title of your link and then click "add".  The name and title should appear highlighted in yellow where ever you placed your curser but will not appear at all in the published version.
