Description Mark Clements (HappyDog) 2004-09-06 11:19:12 UTC
It seems that if you open a named anchor (e.g. [[Economics#See also]]) in a new window then the browser 
stays at the top of the page, and doesn't jump to the appropriate section as it should.  This only 
happens when you open in a new window.  It works fine if you follow the link within the same window.

I am using ie version 5.50.4807.2300 on Windows 2000, and am opening the link by shift-clicking or by 
right-clicking and selecting open in new window.  I tested this in the sandbox on en.wikipedia using 
[[Economics#See also]].

Works for me in Safari 1.2.3 and IE 6.0/Windows XP. It's a bug in your old version of Internet Explorer; we can't do anything about it. Either 
upgrade or report it to Microsoft.
Comment 2 Mark Clements (HappyDog) 2004-09-07 00:20:17 UTC
That's cool - so long as it's not a general bug.  To be honest, I would have been surprised if it was a bug within Wikipedia, but thought I'd better report 
it anyway (could be symptomatic of something else maybe?).  Won't bother reporting to Microsoft as they won't give a toss.
