april thunder I've been trying to find a way to  make webpages open using the rnd (random) function, but have been unsuccessful so far.   For example, if I start out in my index.htm page, I would like to have a clickable link (say, a hotspot), where the "jump" to three or more html pages  would be conditional on the random number generated by the random number function.

In other words, after I click on that hotspot or link, the user would be shunted over to either page1.htm, page2.htm, or page3.htm.  I've seen the rnd thing work on the message boxes, but can't get it to work in this case.

I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to do this...

EBookCompiler Make a text file called random.as


in the HTML, make a link which goes to #!random.as

[A HREF="#!random.as"]Click here[/A]

(change the [ ] to less-than great-than signs)

First line of script sets variable xx to a random number, 1, 2 or 3

Second line navigates to page1.htm, page2.htm page3.htm
