Chapter 6. Working with Links > Linking to a Section of a Page

Linking to a Section of a Page

When you link to a specific location on a Web page, it's referred to as using a named anchor. A named anchor consists of two parts: a named entity at the point on an HTML page where you want your visitor to land, and a link to that anchor. Whereas regular old links point to an entire document, named anchors link to a place on a document. Very long documents should be broken into separate pages, but there can be cases where you want a clickable table of contents (or something similar) that will direct visitors to an area of a page instead of the top of it. You can also place a link to take users from the bottom of a page to the top (see Figure 6.36, page 140).

First, you need to name the part of the page you want to link to. You can name a piece of text, an image, or a headline, for instance.
