Not sure this will help your exact problem (because I don't understand the
details too well), but you seem to be asking about the use of internal page
navigation in a template.  What follows is a small segment I cut out of one
of my templates - it provides 3 levels of navigation and works just fine.

HTH and Regards,


<li><a name=1></a>"The content mixture you are offering isn't right for
<a href=#1a>[more..]</a>
<li><a name=2></a>"The content isn't worth the asking price." <a
<li><a name=3></a>"I have to buy more than I really want or need." <a

<p><a name=1a></a><b>1. Content Mixture:</b> Even when an audience
interested in the topic area, they may not be satisfied with the particular
form in which the content is presented.  Some may want more detail, and some
less - which means that a single presentation mix will typically be optimal
(that is, highly attractive) for only a relatively small audience.  That
small audience may be willing to pay a decent price for the offering, but
it's small size translates into small revenue levels. <a href="#1c"

<p><a name=2a></a><b>2. The Right Price:</b> When the right
content topic is
presented in the right presentation mixture, typically the next common
objection is price.  An audience will perceive a value and associate it with
the content they access.  For a given set of content, different segments of
a market may perceive significantly different values.  When the price
exceeds this perceived value for a market segment, the sales objection of
members of that segment becomes formidable.  <a href="#2c" >[Web-Exec

<p><a name=3a></a><b>3. Only What You Need:</b> Even if the
perceives that the value of the content is in line with its price, many
members of that audience may still object that, the way that the content is
offered forces them to pay for more than they need or want.  This objection
is most frequently associated with the volume of demand or frequency of
need.  <a href="#3c" >[Web-Exec solution]</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href=#1>Back


<p><a name=1c></a><b><u>Web-Exec Solution 1 (Content Mixture)</u>:</b>
<br>Web-Exec allows content 'narrowcasting', which is the capability to
simultaneously offer different 'views' of a set of content to different
segments of a target audience.  <a href=#1a>[back to challenge]</a>

<p><a name=2c></a><b><u>Web-Exec Solution 2 (The Right Price)</u>:</b>
<br>Web-Exec allows each of these 'views' to be offered under a different
pricing strategy.  <a href=#2a>[back to challenge]</a>

<p><a name=3c></a><b><u>Web-Exec Solution 3 (Only What You Need)</u>:</b>
<br>Web-Exec supports a wide range of different kinds of pricing strategies,
including flat rate with unlimited usage, flat rate with limited usage, flat
rate with unlimited usage with usage-based charges, or purely usage-based
charges with no flat rate. .  <a href=#3a>[back to challenge]</a>
