Bookmarks and Hyperlinks

“When inserting a bookmark using Expression Web, how can I keep it from looking and acting like a hyperlink?” was a recent question I was asked.  When inserting a bookmark using Expression Web, most folks will highlight a word or series of words and insert the bookmark. The resulting code will look like this:

<a name=”Site_Map_page”>Site Map page</a>

The above code will act like a hyperlinked line of text, taking on the formatting specified in your style sheet. If instead of highlighting the text Site Map, you insert the bookmark BEFORE Site Map, the bookmark will NOT act like a hyperlink but you can still link to it. Your code would then look like this:

<a name=”Site_Map_page”></a>Site Map page

Simple solution.
