Hi Rick,

I'm trying to insert a bookmark to another location within the same topic. Following along in the help it indicates that I need to create an anchor at the location I want to jump to and then add a bookmark to the same topic using the add anchor option. I must be doing something sideways as I'm not getting the desired results. This is a snippet from the place where I want to jump from:

(See [Process Button](VFPS://Topic/_5UQ0WFCCM#Process Button), below for more information).
And when I view selected source for the target anchort, this is what see:

The <a name="Process Button">Process</a> button

Forgive the noob question but are spaces bad in anchor names?

Asked and answered myself. I got rid of the space in the bookmark name and it renders properly now. Perhaps some validation/warning on illegal bookmark strings might be good?

No not really. The bookmark names you create have to follow HTML guidelines since that's in effect what you're referencing. The problem isn't the reference, the problem is that the attribute name is invalid.
