<a> elements are not to be children of <tr> elements, if they are inside a table, then they must be inside a cell (<td> or <th>).

It will also depend on the browser - as your code functions correctly in IE6. The problem with bookmarks is that there needs to be enough content "below" the bookmarks at the end of the page to allow them to be moved to the top of the page.

Hi,
kill the page name (s...html); you only need the "#xxx";

   <td><a href="#one">Configuration SSIs</a></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
      <td><a href="#two">Echo SSIs</a></td>
  </tr>

  <tr>
      <td><a href="#three">Execute SSIs</a></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
      <td><a href="#four">File Information SSIs</a></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
      <td><a href="#five">Include File Data SSIs</a></td>

  </tr>

your code is working fine. I guess the problem that you are having is that
the first <a> link works fine but the second one does not show up at
the top of the page. This is because there is not enough content

Try adding a few <BR><BR> at the end of the page
