Say i have a URL

http://www.a.com/test.asp?ID=10&Day=Sun

How do I make it go to a bookmark with the same Querystring

for e.g.

1. http://www.a.com/test.asp#BookmarkName?ID=10&Day=Sun OR
2. http://www.a.com/test.asp?ID=10&Day=Sun#BookmarkName

either of the above does not work.

<HEAD>
<SCRIPT language="javascript">
 function querystring(name)   // returns a named value from the querystring

   var tmp = ( location.search.substring(1) );

   if ( i >= 0 )
   {
      tmp = tmp.substring( name.length+i+1 );
      i = tmp.indexOf("&");
      return unescape( tmp = tmp.substring( 0, (i>=0) ? i : tmp.length ));

in the page above, you would do this:

 http://www.a.com/test.asp?ID=10&Day=Sun&anchor=BookmarkName

if you sub "bottom" for "BookmarkName" in the example above it will work

you can do this to verify:

<BODY onload='alert(querystring("Day"));location.replace("#"+querystring("anchor"));'>
