Howdy,

Two more things... the hypertarget is very tight so the first line is usually just above the top of the displayed page. You can move the \hypertarget to just before the previous \\[...] command but remember to add an empty brace pair, {}, since it takes two argument.

Second is that the Abstract'' is really a set of acronyms so why not use the glossaries package which is able to create acronym tables and active links?

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
