Using Netscape Navigator

Testing HTML Applications
The best way to ensure that Robot recognizes this link is to assign it a Name that
always remains the same, even if the visible text changes -- for example:
See <A HREF="about.htm/" Name=about> About Our Product</A>
To enhance the recognition of image elements, it is best to use ALT tags as shown in

<input type="image" src="lookpix.gif"
width="366" height="41"
