What you type 

This is an incorrect sample word document link. This link shows an incorrect link for a sample word document.  It will become BLUE after you upload a file to complete the link.  However, because the node name was sample0 rather than sample0.doc,  EDGE may get confused about the file type when someone tries to  view the document. Remember to use the appropriate file type  for the node name, and use the pipe (vertical bar) to provide  whatever text you would like to display for the link. If the  file type is missing in the node, EDGE will assume everything is a WORD file.
