Re: Anchor points

I understand the

<a name="some anchor point">

This is used by

<a href="#some anchor point">Click here to jump to.</a>

But if I want to jump to another file but to this anchor point,
how can I accomplish this?

I think the question you're asking is `How can I jump from another file to the
anchor "some anchor point" in the file "somefile.html"?' If that's correct,
the answer is

Here's <a href="somefile.html#some anchor point">a link to an anchor.</a>

(Note absence of "click" terminology, which kettle of worms we've just been
over.) The "anchor" part of the href ("#some anchor point") is appended to
the rest of the URL.
