    Top of the page. (Publisher 2003)

    I have a web site I created in Publisher. I would like to put a link (?) to let the reader go to the top of the page. I have the navigation bar at the top of the page. <img src=/S/igiveup.gif border=0 alt=igiveup width=31 height=23>

    The hyperlink address to the top of a page is #top .

    I'm sorry Bob, I don't have the answer. I don't use Publisher as a web authoring tool, and as I have mentioned in a few other threads, I would recommend that anyone who is creating more than a one-time very basic one or two page site investigate other web design packages. While Publisher "can" produce web pages, it is primarily a desktop publishing tool and was designed to produce printed publications, not web sites. As you are discovering, any Office application apart from FrontPage (Publisher, Word, Excel) that "can" produce web pages is severely limited in flexibility and design capabilities. As well, the html code that is produced "behind the scenes" by these programs is unbelievably bloated.

    <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> I found the solution. It was pretty much as I described the situation above. To go to the top of a page. do the following.

    Go to the bottom of the page in Publisher.

    Enter a line like

    Hi Bob,
    Glad you found the answer.
    <hr>The secret is this. Upload your Publisher document to your web site. At your web site, the hyperlink does work.
    <hr>
    In Publisher, if you "Preview your web site...." in the task pane, your "go to top of page" link does work.

    Don't know if you realize this or not, but while all of your hyperlinks in the main navigation bar work in IE, Firefox and Opera, almost nothing else works in Firefox or Opera. On your "Contact Us" page, none of the email links work; on the "Request for Blogs" page, none of the email links work nor does the Go (to top of page) link; and on your "Blogs" page, none of the links work (proprietary Microsoft code generated by Publisher). As well, I have a high speed connection, and these pages (which are not very long) load very slowly. I'm sure this is due to the massive amount of Microsoft specific code that is generated by Publisher. Perhaps another few arguments against using Publisher as a web site generator? <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
