OK, no one decided to tackle my HTML to PDF destination question. In the meantime I found my answer here:

Let's try another question.

First a background. As a suggestion to fill a quick and dirty need for a help system, I wanted to see if I can create a link from a software program to a specific named destination in a PDF file. For example, user is in the Widget Configuration window and clicks on help. Lo' and behold, this opens to the widget configuration procedure of my already existant manual. In the meantime I can create a more appropriate help system.

Anyone know what kind of syntax one would use to call a named destination in a Windows environment?
