Word creates a new, empty HTML file and links to it. Later, you can create a new
page (see page 206) and save it with this name.
You’ve now got a navigation bar to help visitors get around your site.
Tip: If you’d prefer a line of links across the top of the page instead of a left-hand navigation bar, follow
these steps after you’ve created the page’s header: Insert a row into your table just under the header and
use the Table Tools | Design tab’s Shading button to give it a stand-out color. Split the row (Table Tools |
Layout➝Split Cells or Alt, JL, P) into the number of cells you need for your navigation links. For example,
if your website has six pages, including Home, split the row into six cells. Type in the names of your
website’s pages, one per cell. Then create links as described in steps 4–9 above.
