Bookmarks / Netscape 3

Posted on 1998-07-27
Last Modified: 2010-05-18
Bookmarks on my page are not working in Netscape 3. Everytime a bookmark link is clicked it just moves to the top of the page rather than to the specific bookmark. The bookmarks work fine on all the other browsers.
Any help much appreciated.

Do you use <A NAME="sub"></A> and <A HREF="#sub">Sub</A>?

MARTINAG has the correct answer;
the HTML standard _requires_ some "text"
to appear between '<A HREF="#anchor">'
and the '</A>' tag.

Some browsers ignore this requirement of the standard,
and _assume_ that there is something, i.e.., '&nbsp;'
between the two tags.

Change your HTML. For example, change:

<font color="#FFFFFF" size="2">
<img src="images/main_tab.GIF"
alt="Main House" width="106" height="19">
<a name="september"></a>

to become:

<a name="september">
  <font color="#FFFFFF" size="2">
    <img src="images/main_tab.GIF"
     alt="Main House" width="106" height="19">

to solve the problem.
