Adding a country flag and link in WebHelp

We are translation tyros...

Now that we have both an English and a Japanese Web help, how can I add a little Japanese flag + link to the English version (and vice-versa)?

We have placed the help project version number in the Header at far right. Is there a way to shoe-horn in the flag + link in this area (which is automatically generated from variables in the H+M project)?

I can't decipher where the code originates in Firefox's inspector, or I might be able to answer this myself.

Hi Dave,

You would basically just add the flag image along with the same code you used to insert your version number, using the image as a link, like this:

Code: Select all
<a href="../help/japanese/index.html"><img src="japan.gif" alt="Japanese Version" width="30px" height="12px" border="0" /></a>

You need to adjust the references to your Japanese WebHelp and the flag image and dimensions, of course... 8)
