I have whipped up a few web pages and I want to link them together using the "button" feature in frontpage express.  It's easy enough to create and place the button and name it what I want, but I can't seem to figure out how to make it link to the other pages.  To see what I'm talking about go to:   http://pages.tstar.net/~hcrick/index.html
For the other pages substitute index.html with:
contactpage.html or hardwarepage.html or softwarepage.html

I have changed the buttons.  I used Paint to make them then put them in as jpg's then set them to the pages.  THEY LOOK LIKE POO-POO.
On the tool bar in FrontPage Express there are buttons and such that you can insert into the page, rename them, and I hoped, link them to a page.
The problem is: I can't figure out how to link the toolbar buttons to a page after I insert and rename them.

It's the little brother of FrontPage.  It's FrontPage Express.
The version # is 2.0.2.1128
The buttons are on the forms bar on the view menu.

The button you what to used by javascript/perl etc. if you want the button to link to another page you will need to add this javascript...

<html>
  <body>
      <form name="jump">
      <input type=button value="friends" onclick="window.location='friends.html'">
      <input type=button value="links" onclick="window.location='links.html'">
      </form>
  </body>
</html>


You can add as many of the input lines as you wish!

Just to add...
You can add this in the HTML mode and after the url there is a single quote ' followed by a double quote "

(Just cut and paste!)
