Greetings!

My 14 volume set of manuals (heavily indexed) compiles nicely -- and

My index (around 100 pages) comes out beautifully -- and completely for the

such that the word "Symbols" and each letter are hyperlinked to the
corresponding Heading in the Index chapter of the Index volume.

\newcommand{\newindexmarginmark}[1]{%
\href{file:APP\#{#1}}{\textbf{#1}}%
}%

\newindexmarginmark{A}
\newindexmarginmark{B}
\newindexmarginmark{C}
...

\BF{\Large{#1}}%
%	\label{#1}%
}

I can design the thing visually, but I can't seem to figure out how to make
these links.  At this point, with the LaTeX written as shown above, all the

Can you help me?

Best regards,
Elisabeth Baker
