    I looked and looked. I printed out the page on the html crash course for HP, but it does NOT tell me where to place the code.

    I clicked on code and played the video and that doesn't explain it either. Is there a tutorial?

    The capsules are great, but it is easier to make text a hyperlink.

    Your help is greatly appreciated!

      simply put this below around the word you want to be linked

      <a href="http://www.example.com">  Your Text </a>

      replace  http://www.example.com with your website or website page 
      replace " Your Text"  with what you want

      What is covert text? Are you talking about anchor text?

    It is even more simple than that. Highlight the words you want to link and press on the chain icon in the toolbar of the capsule. Then you input the link into there and voila.

    You can't input HTML code into the capsules.

    I figured out how to use the capsules...I will try what you said. grab the text and click the link icon.

      Ok I tried this. I click and hi-light the text, click the chain link and the ONLY thing that happens is the capsule appears at the bottom of page. is there another chainlink somewhere I do not see on the page to click.

    Ok I figured it out. You MUST be in the text edit for the tool bar to show the chain link which is grey on the top right. It is not apparent when you have the capsule tool bar on the right that is so visable.

    Thanks I got it!
