nas a master index full of brief descriptions and respective hyperlinks to
the rest of your collection.
You can also use either the name variant of the <a> tag or the id attribute

suffix to the URL.
For instance, to reference a specific topic in an archive, such as "Kum-

<h3 id="Stews">Kumquat Stew Recipes</h3>
in the same or another document, then prepare a source hyperlink that
points directly to those recipes by including the section's id value as a
suffix to the document's URL, separated by a pound sign:

and perhaps try one or two of our
Kumquat Stew Recipes</a>.
If selected by the user, the latter hyperlink causes the browser to down-
load the archive.html document and start the display at our "Stews" sec-
