Description Richard Karpinski 2005-10-25 22:09:53 UTC
I put an anchor called Back to Contents at the top of my long page:

<div id="Back to Contents">ToC</div>.

Then I made many [[#Back to Contents]] links at the bottom of each section. At
first they worked beautifully, then I dropped the "ToC" and they still worked.

Then I added a new section by adding a heading within an existing section. Now
none of the links does anything beyond putting a dotted box around the link and
saying Done on the bottom line of the Firefox window. Mousing over one of these
links shows a complete address from the http to the "tents" (with blanks
replaced by underscores).

Wow, while putting underscores into the links made no difference, when I, for
the first time, PUT UNDERSCORES INTO THE ANCHOR, it finally FIXED EVERYTHING.

ARRRRRGH!!!!

Please don't make things that work SOMETIMES. They drive me crazy.

What happened? Is there anything I can do to get another hint about the problem
or how to fix it?

Please check the output for whether your links are correct.
Comment 2 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-10-26 11:32:20 UTC
tray to use underscores instead of spaces
<div id="Back_to_Contents">ToC</div>
