Java Programming question

I'm serching for a way to use an anchor in a url.
It seems to me that the Virtual machines on Explorer and Netscape doesn't support this.

What I want is to make an applet that loads a page
and displays it at some paragraph in th text.
I have to use an anchor for that but it doesn't seem to work.

Does anyone no a workaround for it or another methode that makes this possible ?

Use regular anchor syntax:
  getAppletContext().showDocument(getDocumentBase(),"Test.html#here");

It works in Netscape (both 3.01 Gold and Communicator PR5), and it's a known bug in MS IE. I haven't tried it yet in IE 4.0

Hold on, I've found workaround for MS IE!
IE skips first pound sign, so the above URL is translated to "Test.htmlhere", but fortunately it doesn't skip the second #.
Test for the browser and if it's MS IE, add a second # to make it "Test.html##here"

(Thats a 200 points answer! :)
