Create a hyperlink

In Microsoft Office Publisher 2003, you can create hyperlinks to files, Web pages, e-mail addresses, and other pages in a Web publication by using the Insert Hyperlink button on the Standard toolbar.

You can also create a hyperlink to a specific location on a Web page (sometimes called inserting a bookmark) by using HTML code fragments. To learn more about this procedure, see the topics listed in the See Also section, which is visible when you are connected to the Internet.

To follow a hyperlink after you insert it, hold down CTRL while you click the linked text or picture.
