Hi Experts,

I have a pretty basic question that I am having trouble with.

page1.html
<a href="page2.html#book">my book</a>

Open in new window



page2.html
...
...
<a name="book">my book</a>

Open in new window


This does not seem to work in my application. Why?

Don't use name, use ID

E.g.

<a id="book"></a>

The name attribute doesn't exist in HTML5 for an anchor link

Same issue.

Nothing wrong with the code, if this really is an html page then do an hard refresh else something else is intercepting the link

Just set the ID on the header tag, no need for extra markup

Is this in Chrome? There was a bug in Chrome, works fine in FF
