    HTML Anchors, Links

    On my main page, I want to link to another page (inside the page)
    I have <a href="26_001.htm#Time">Time</a>
    26_001.htm is the page - #Time is the area in the page
    On the page to be linked to I have <a name="Time">Time</a>
    I found .html does not work but .htm does. It goes to that page but
    #Time does not go to <a name="Time"> the area in the page ???
    I checked several instructions on anchors and links to verify it was correct.
    What can I do to correct it ? Why does .htm work and .html not work ?

    Typically nowadays you use the ID attribute though the files *.htm and *.html are two different files respectably. Therefore <a href="index.htm#example"> differs to <a href="index.html#example"> they'd go to two different files. You obviously don't have a file of the correct name containing; #Time with the *.html extension so it should go nowhere specific on the latter page.
