Ok, just a heads up I am completely new to this, I'm trying to setup a basic site for my consulting and have been having issues with even basic things. I finally got the links to open the correct other pages on my site, but now I cannot get anything to link to an external site. I am just trying to setup a list of reference sites that someone can click on and go to the other website. But anytime I try to do it the site tries to link to the external address on my site. Such as my site it www.tmcdesignworks.com (http://www.tmcdesignworks.com), and I want a link to www.solidworks.com (http://www.solidworks.com), so it tries to go to www.tmcdesignworks.com/www.solidworks.com (http://www.tmcdesignworks.com/www.solidworks.com)

I'm using Dreamweaver 8 if that makes a difference, and I have searched the help files and did not see any reference for external sites.

Thanks for the help in advance.
