(Hello, this is my first posting to this mailing list - please point out if
I'm doing anything wrong, like submitting the question to the wrong list)

Scenario (using Netscape Navigator 1.1):

If you have:
<form action="foo.html#somewhere" method="get">

Then the next page gets the url:


and the "#somewhere" gets overwritten.

Is this the intended behavior of HTML spec? Is this an
implementation-dependent behavior? I could not find any mention of this
case in the HTML 2.0 draft spec.

Best Regards,
