I cannot get my links to work. Do I need to name them something special? Do they get uploaded to the same ftp area? Help, I am very new at this and can't figure it out

Hi Sheila,

May I suggest a visit to Professional Web Design at for their tutorials. They have three that work really well to get you into writing html and if you will work through all three you will understand html quite well.

(By the way I am in no way affiliated with this site. I just learned all my basic html skills from the tutorials)

Good luck
