I've never had this problem, myself, but I'm wondering if there's any
way you can put the links in a frame? I've done this on my online docs
so that the TOC is always there for easy navigation. You have to ref
the named frame, but they all work discretely.

Can you send me the offending HTML and let me see if I or anyone of the
other folks here can spot the problem???
