You can link to a specific spot on someone else's web page, but only
if they've put in a tag for you to refer to.

You may be able to find a link somewhere that already points to that
place. The URL will include the # symbol followed by the name of the
tag; for example, in fellow MVP Shauna Kelly's page at
http://www.shaunakelly.com/word/sfpa...ttingPane.html
you'll find a series of links to other places on the page, of which
the first is
http://www.shaunakelly.com/word/sfpa...istAllS tyles.
You can put exactly the same URL into a hyperlink in Word, and it will
go to the same place.

If you don't see a link already in the page, you can look for any tags
that might be there. Use your browser's View Source command to look at
the underlying HTML. Search for the sequence of characters

a name

If you find something, for example

a name = "X_Marks_the_Spot"

then you can place the quoted text (without the quotes) after the
page's URL and the # sign to jump to that spot.

If the page's author hasn't included any tags, though, you're just out
of luck.
