    Ok, I did connect to the page I want to work on so I'm not so ignorant. The page has a "link" to another page and it was that other page, page two, that I was writing . I 'fetched' the document and it appeared in the Fetch list, in the folder that the person who is running the page told me to put it in. But now how do I get page one's linking words ("symptoms") to take the reader to my page? and how do I get page one's "symptoms" to be blue, showing that it links to something?

    That's really an HTML question. Different HTML editors have different ways of specifying links. Sometimes you have to select the text that you want to turn into a link, and then press a button or choose a menu item.

    If you are writing HTML directly a link looks like this:

    symptoms

    In this example the word "symptoms" will be a link to the file "symptoms.html".

    Thanks, realized that myself after posting. So I tried to download the "first" page to make the link. Highlighted the file and then clicked on Get File but nothing seemed to happen. The file is still listed as being there and I don't see it on my desktop. By the way, I'm using a Mac.
    One problem is that this site has been worked on by different people using different programs. For example, the page I'm trying to find was done in that Netscape Nav. program, while I am just using Simple Text. There seems to be a lot of files I don't recognize.

    If you choose "Preferences..." from the Customize menu in Fetch, and then click on the Download tab, you'll see what the download folder is set to. That's where you should find your file. You can also search for it with Sherlock.
