For example, using Sigil, you create an anchor using a pair of DIV tags and an ID property in the target / linked-to file just above the place you want to link to:
<div id="ANCHOR_NAME"> </div>
In Sigil this is what you should enter in the file you are linking from:
<p><a href="../Text/FILENAME_OF_LINKED_TO_FILE.xhtml#ANCHOR_NAME">The user will see the text here</a></p>
Obviously both FILENAME_OF_LINKED_TO_FILE and ANCHOR_NAME can be anything you choose, always best to keep them logical! You can, of course, also link to positions within the same file / chapter. And as Martin says, you need to test each link on the Kindle itself.
Hope this helps!
Great thanks, this is what I was looking for but could not find searching it online.
One thing though, I'm using OpenOffice to write the manuscript and I have an online guide that shows me how to put it into Kindle via OpenOffice alone (i.e. not using Sigil). Can I put this same code in OpenOffice or is there any other way to do it via OpenOffice?
