I was playing a bit with the HTML component and found it didn't accept anchors in the names of the html-documents it parses. The requestdoc method seems to ignore the #anchor part of a URL like document.html#anchor'. Is this really the case or am I doing something wrong?
Does anyone know of a solution for this?

I don't know of a solution, but you are correct: RequestDoc does not handle anchors, and it doesn't appear to have any other method or property for anchors...

You are not doing something wrong.
THtml component simply ignore anchors in URL property.
But, at least, it handles internal links to anchors in the same page.
I submited a sugestion to NetManage some time ago, but AFAIK they are not in charge of these components any more.
The only solution I can sugest you is contact Borland by e-mail reporting this problem. Perhaps, if a lot of people do the same thing they can correct it in future versions.

P.S.: Unfortunately, some times, the right answer is: "No, you can't", but it doesn't make it the wrong answer. Sorry.
