Using ``See also'' links in Web pages
We recommend that you provide one or more ``See also'' links
to give the reader various choices of where to go next.
- In the TCC help system, for example, there is always a
``See also'' link
that takes you to the page at the level above the current
one in the overall outline. By following enough of these links,
the reader can eventually walk back to the root of the tree,
or perhaps to some higher-level topic that they want to see.
(Many authors use an ``Up'' link for this purpose, but that
is confusing to the reader who did not reach the current page
through the usual linear sequence).
- If you can think of some other places that readers
are likely to want to go from here, use more ``See also''
links for those destinations. For example, in a procedural
chunk, you may mention related procedures, or things that
can go wrong.
