Named Anchors

Named anchors are a special kind of link. Rather than linking one page to another, named anchors are used to navigate within a single page—linking a list of headings at the top of a page to subsequent sections of the document, for example—or linking to a location in the middle of a different page. Clicking on a named anchor link scrolls the browser to the appropriate point on the page, or opens another page in the middle, displaying the specified anchor point.

You can begin by creating links, then making named anchors to go with them, or you can set up the anchors first. The first method works best if you're creating a single link that connects to a single anchor. Creating the anchor (or anchors) first works best if you plan to create several links that point to a single anchor point, or if you are designing a navigation scheme or table of contents that goes with an existing document.
