      The HTML anchor tag  which i have used in a page to navigate to another page  is not working in IE6, but its working perfectly in other browsers.
Is there any settings to be made in IE6?  or  IE6 does not support anchor tag at all ?
Any help is appreciated.

    Can you post the code here.. Usually anchor tag in IE6 won't cause any problem..

    IE will not recognize blank anchor tags. If it's blank, that's likely the problem. Try formatting it like this:

    <a name="AnchorName" id="AnchorName">&nbsp;</a>

    Hey !!
    I have tried it in IE6, it is perfectly working fine, opening the page in new window.

    <a href="" target="_blank">Placed text instead of image</a>

    Please check once again.
