Link bars are an easy and professional way to provide navigation to other Web pages.
You can use back and next links for moving between a series of pages, as in a story. You can use custom links to specify which links will appear on the bar, such as links to your company information, news releases, or related Web pages.
To create link bars, you must save your document as a Web page or Single File Web Page (Single File Web Page (MHTML): An HTML document saved in MHTML format, which integrates inline graphics, applets, linked documents, and other supporting items referenced in the document.) to a Web server that is running FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions from Microsoft or SharePoint Team Services from Microsoft.
The link bar provides a list of links related to your page. You can specify text links, choose from a gallery of graphical images, or have Microsoft Word base the links on a theme (theme: A set of unified design elements that provides a look for your document by using color, fonts, and graphics.).
You can specify the order of the links in the bar, and you can have Microsoft Word display the bar at the top of your page or the left side of it.
If you want to change your link bar later, you can modify its properties.
