I have a question regarding how to set the focus to a specific "spot" on a new page.
I will go to AAA page first. AAA page is usually long with vertical scroll bar. It has a list (bullet points) of texts. I can make the texts <div> with anchors. Users can use scroll bar or page Up/Down to go to any spot on AAA page. Then users have a button on AAA page to go to BBB page. This BBB page has the same list (bullet points) of texts, but in another language. This means the lengh of the texts (bullet points) might be very different on the two pages.
We wish to put the focus roughly at the same bullet point on BBB page when user leaves AAA page. Since users do not really have a focused control when they move from AAA to BBB, it seems we cannot track where they really are (at AAA page). Or can we?
Is there a way to do this? Thanks for any help.
