I'ed like to know how this code is being used!

I ran into the code below and wanted to understand it, I didn't know that an <a> tag
could be used like this. Can someone point me to a link I could read up on.
Or even take some time to write down a few lines would work.

<a name="AS1Q6"><span class="questionNum">6.&nbsp;</span></a>

thanks!

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Or was the question about the embedded span?

creates a label in a document. In other places, you can refer to this label in the document as doc#AS1Q6.

The span tag is for formatting the text inside it..
