In html is there a ez way to link to a link ?

I have links under subjects
new hire
access forms
admin stuff.

Now I want to make a new subject, top used links.  
favorite link
2nd favorte line
3rd favoite link

Now I do not want multiple places to update if there is a change.  I would like to link the "top used links" to the link in the subjects below.


this is just a run of the mill html page on my local computer.  I dislike the use of favorites links in my browser, really prefer a local html page stating the link, who is in charge of it, the rulles of using the link etc.   I am in a very large complex place :)

Maybe you want to link to an anchor on the same page as follows
<html>
<head><title>Link collection</title></head>
<body>
<h1>Link Collection</h1>
<ul>
<li><a href="#first">first section</a></li>
<li><a href="#second">second section</a></li>
<li><a href="#third">third section</a></li>
</ul>
<h2><a name="first" /> First Section</h2>
<ul>
<li><a href="...">Whatever</a></li>
<li><a href="...">Whatever</a></li>
<li><a href="...">Whatever</a></li>
</ul>
<h2><a name="second" /> Second Section</h2>
<ul>
<li><a href="...">Whatever</a></li>
<li><a href="...">Whatever</a></li>
<li><a href="...">Whatever</a></li>
</ul>
<h2><a name="third" /> Third Section</h2>
<ul>
<li><a href="...">Whatever</a></li>
<li><a href="...">Whatever</a></li>
<li><a href="...">Whatever</a></li>
</ul>

</body>
</html>

Yes, if I correctly understand what you're trying to do, you can use an id for each, like this (assuming that you're using a list,  but it could be in any element or page)

<ul>
      <li id="fav1"> <a href="http://www.careers.com">new hire</a> </li>
      <li id="fav2"> <a href="http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/access">access forms</a></li>
      <li id="fav3"> <a href="http://admin.com">admin stuff.</a></li>
</ul>

In the favorites page, link to it using code that references the page and id, like this:
This week's favorites:
<ol>
<li><a href="original.html#fav1">Favorite 1</a></li>
<li><a href="original.html#fav2">Favorite 2</a></li>
<li><a href="original.html#fav3">Favorite 3</a></li>
</ol>
