    Underlined text (FrontPage XP)

    I notice that some names on one of my Web pages have a dashed underline in when viewed in nomal view in FP and others do not. An example of the html code for the underline text is <h1><a name="John Smth">John Smith</a></h1>. The html for the non underlined text is <h1>Jane Smity</h1>. What are the >a tags and how did I put them their? What are they used for?

    Those are bookmarks or link destinations within a page. (The a in HTML stands for "anchor", so that is another way you can think of it as an anchor that you are linking to).

    As Catharine pointed out, the < a > tag is an anchor, or what is generally referred to as a 'hyperlink'. Whether a hyperlink is actually underlined or not, is dependant upon your browser. In Internet Explorer, click Tools-->Internet Options, then click the Advanced tag. One of the options is for 'Underlining Hyperlinks', and you have the choice of Always, Hover, and Never.
