(1) X Mosaic 0.8 doesn't jump to internal links inside documents like
it should anyway; this is already fixed for 0.9.
(2) X Mosaic 0.9 won't behave any differently with your document,
unless you've got a really small window, since all of the text is
already in the window and there's nothing to jump to -- anchor
local is already being displayed. And what's the "cursor" you're
referring to? Not the mouse pointer??

BTW, <t> isn't HTML.
