Make a new page for each link. Link each link to the new pages. Don't
chase this will-o-the-wisp....

Why, this is usually not a good idea nor is it necessary. As Murray suggested, just use separate pages and use some other method like templates or server side includes to eliminate maintenance of common items.

This is almost always a disaster. PhotoShop is a graphics applications and creates terrible html code. Once you start inserting text into a PS designed page, you'll find it falls apart. Not always, but often enough.
Thanx guys. As I said, I'm a complete newbie. :)
I'll take your advice about making separate pages for the different buttons. Even if it's the same lay-out.
God, I wish it was as simple as AE...
