<a name="1020248">text</a>
creates a bookmark with a name of "1020248".

If you want to create a link that jumps to that bookmark, you have to enter

<a href="#1020248">text</a>

Not sure whether that makes it clear or muddy.

I think the tag for an internal target is like

<a name="1020248">text</a>

isn't it?

We are trying to view an HTML file on the CE 3.0 Professional browser.

The HTML file is called sct10114.htm. The CE browser can read and link to
<a href="sct10114.htm#1020248"> just fine. However, when the CE browser
tries to read <a href="1020248"> the link doesn't work (even though it does
exist in the file). Does anyone know why this is happening, and if there is
a way to code the links for viewing on a CE browser which do not reference
the entire file name?

Thanks in advance,
