Don't want Table of Contents, need hyperlink to jump

We have a bilingual newsletter. 

I removed the TOC because
1) we have only one major topic and
2) within that topic I have mutiple pictures; each of them is a separate content block without a heading, but these display as ophan bullet points when the TOC is activated.

So the TOC is out.  But I want our Chinese readers to immediately see there's a Chinese section and jump to it easily.

How can I put in a hyperlink to do that?

(Please, if possible tell me how to do this without me editing HTML or do coding.)

Hi Mike, there is a little coding required to get this to work, however, it isn't too tricky to do. Essentially, you need to create a anchor link, which is a special link for navigating around an email or webpage. Here's what the code looks like:

Your link: <a href="#tips">View the Chinese section</a>
The text to link to: <a id="tips">Chinese language section</a>

If you surround the relevant text with the <a></a> tags in the format above, you should be able to "jump" down. In the email editor, you can make these changes within the <source> view of a multiline editable region.

Please note that anchor links are not universally supported - just something to keep in mind.

Thanks, Mike - if you have any questions about this, please don't hesitate to ask.

I find that AOL web works fine with only Name anchors, while ID anchors don't work for me in Outlook 2003.

The article referenced above is from 2010 - will there be an updated chart at some point?
