The HOT PINK colored words stand for Major Categories, and when you click on a Pink Category, that link will bring you to another page with multiple listings of more pages belonging to that category.
As an example, Basic Tools is a Major Category with a next to it. When you click on this link, you will get a list of all the basic tools a beginner would need to start working with Polymer Clay. Each of these individual tools would also have their own links from the Table of Contents, and it's obviously a great help for all beginners!
Clicking on Subject words followed by an Asterisk (*) will have more information added later, but for now they will pop up a window with some information about that term, such as a definition.
