Hi, guys...I'm making some progress with picking up the basics of ID.
I have what may seem like a normal question, though it might be tough
to implement.

I'm doing a newsletter and I've threaded several frames that are
dispersed from page to page over three pages. As a the content fills
up the first frame, it spills to the second frame, then the third. It
took me about 15 minutes get the knack of this.

Now, what I want to do is at the end of the first frame, include a
hyperlinked link "<title> continued on page X" the the top of the
secind frame and at the top of the second frame "<title> continued
from page X". I want that reference to stay at the bottom and top of
the frames regardless of what point the text spills back and forth.

Is this possible? I assume it is. If it is, can you just give me a
hint of the approach and I'll figure out the rest.
