WebStyler: What is a `next link'?

In many lot of cases you want the reader to go through a particular group of pages in sequence. One good way is to place a prominently labeled `Next' link on each page but the last.

In a WebStyler-structured document, there are two possible sources for the `next' link:

  1. If you have a specific page in mind, use a <next> tag to tell WebStyler where the `next' link should go.
  2. If you don't provide a <next> tag, the target of the next link will be inferred from the file's position in the outline structure as described in the `Plan' file---specifically, the page following this page at the same level, if any.

Note: many pages won't have a `next' link. For those pages, the `see also link' should give readers a way out.
