Re: URL and E-mail hyperlinks

1    Place the cursor just before the first word of the
     text that is to become the hotspot.

2    Choose Special > Hypertext.

3    In the Hypertext (marker) dialogue, type

     @    message URL http://your.target.url


     @    message URL mailto:recipient@server.name.dom

4    Click New Hypertext Marker.

5    Select the string of text that is to become the hotspot.

     Make sure the marker is selected, too.

6    Apply a character format.

     Most people have a format called something like HyperLink
     that applies a distinctive 'link' appearance.

7    On Windows, press Ctrl-Alt and click the hotspot.

     Your browser or email client should open.

     FrameMaker searches the character format when it is clicked,
     looking for a Hypertext marker. That is why the marker must
     be selected.  The hotspot string is converted to a link in

Ok. I'm not stupid but  I don't
think the FM manual is explaining this clearly.

Can anyone explain this simply?
