How to link a page

How can I cause a link to a page to open the page and show the area of the page that contains that section.  For example, a page has 5 sections and the user is on some other page and the click a link that takes them to the area of the page and shows section 4 instead of just sitting at the top of the page.

How is this done?

Thanks

As I already stated the anchor form of the a tag is obsolete.

For backward compatibility the modern browsers will still find an anchor using name, but with additional overhead because they will look for id first.  

All new development and maintenance should not be using obsolete formats.

Please read the specification and follow best practice with current standards applied.
