A: Is that a standard HTML feature?

B: I can't control the entire document, I can only control what is put inside the <body> </body> tags. Is there anyway I can put the onload= thing (whats it called?) inside the body?

C: Is it a sign that you need to get to bed when colors start to change and things become blury?

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

{
      window.location=locatn;
}
</SCRIPT>

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

Hi,

Actually, the location needs to have been read and interpreted before it can jump.  Therefore, the script needs to go after the html anchor -- note that the text between the '<a>' tags is optional.  

<body...>
...content...
<a name='bottom'> </a>
<script type='text/javascript'>
window.location = '#bottom';
</script>
</body>

<SCRIPT language=\"JavaScript\"> scrollTo(0,document.body.scrollHeight); </SCRIPT>

I get a runntime error - "An error has occured in the script on this page"

Im not relly sure what im doing, the control is being a pain. If you can tell me how to get it to work without an error occuring, I will post another question for you.

Thank you for your time,
