Large page with verticle and horizontal scrolling

I would like to create a page that has a very large height and width.  On that page are various anchors that I would like to have javascript scroll to.

For example in this code, if you click on "Go To Hello Two"  the page would automatically shift/ smoothly scroll  to the left so Hello World Two was in the top Left hand corner.
