I'm trying to add an anchor point to a query string. Is this possible?
My anchor looks like this:
<a name="foo" id="foo"></a>

I've played around with the following examples:
test.asp?ID=1&offset=20#foo
test.asp?ID=1&offset=20&anchor=#foo
test.asp?ID=1&offset=20&anchor=foo

In IE7 I keeping getting the same error:
"IE cannot open the Internet site... Operation aborted"

If I don't use the anchor point within the querystring it works fine but the user will have to scroll down the page.
