I've gto a few problems with my page, but I'll only ask basic questions, trying to figure out the rest by myself.
I've got this program "html helper", with which I did the page. How do I cut the page into smaller parts, and in the bottom of each part insert a link to the next?

General intro:
1. Open the page in a text editor (e.g. notepad)
2. The stuff between <BODY> and </BODY> is the actual text of the page (the <BODY> may have some other stuff between the angle brackets).  All the stuff between < and > are special HTML tags including formatting links etc.  But we won't go into that for now.
3. Now exit the text editor without making any changes.

Now the How To:
1. Make copies of the page N times (depending on how many pages you want), give each copy a different name ending in .HTM (and keeping note of the names).  For an example, I'll assume the original page is called INDEX.HTM and you make copies into PAGE2.HTM, PAGE3.HTM and PAGE4.HTM.  I'll also suggest making a safe copy of the original (INDEX.HTM) in case we screw up...
2. Open up each file in a text editor.  Delete the stuff you don't want on that page (between the <BODY> and </BODY>.  Try and break at a paragraph or another convienant location (e.g. avoid breaking in the middle of a line unless you understand the tags).  Repeat this for each file.
3. You should now have several pages each with part of the text but not linked.  Check this by viewing each page in your web browser.  If it's not quite right, close the browser, go back to text editing and repeat until you're happy.
4. You're now ready to add the links.  To insert a link into a page, add to text between the <BODY> and </BODY> tags something like
<A HREF="PAGE2.HTM">Link-to-page-2</A>
The HREF parameter allows you to set which filename you jump to.  The "Link-to-page-2" can be replaced with whatever words you like.
5. You can add as many of these links as you like, for example Next/Previous links or each page, or a table of contents page which then links to all the pages, or whatever.
