Hi, Becca.

Winhlp-L would still be the best place for that kind of guidance, but let me
see if I can help you with these questions. If I get any of them wrong, I'm
sure someone will volunteer to correct me. :-)

> Final//EN">
This is a document type declaration. It indicates where the document type
definition (DTD) for this HTML file can be found. It's really not necessary
for HTML, but is for XML or SGML.

> <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" Content="text/html;
> charset=Windows-1252">
This is a meta tag describing the content type and character set-also
optional for HTML

> <OBJECT TYPE="application/x-oleobject"
> CLASSID="clsid:1e2a7bd0-dab9-11d0-b93a-00c04fc99f9e">
> <PARAM NAME="Keyword" VALUE="Tile Vertical command
> (Window menu)">
This is an Active-X object, in this case a K keyword or index term. Although
OBJECT is a standard HTML tag, the object type is what defines what it
actually is.

> <A NAME="hlp_window_tilevert"></A>
This is a an anchor tag with a NAME attribute. It's used to location the end
of a link from an an anchor tag with an HREF attrribute.

> sometimes the <A NAME= tags are encolsed in

Superscript tag. This is inline formatting often used for footnotes or
trademark information. Why it would be around an anchor tag is anybody's

Hope this helps.
