SYMPTOMS

Calling AppletContext.showDocument(URL) with a URL that contains an anchor (http://myserver/mypage.html#myanchor) opens the correct Web page but does not navigate to the anchor.

CAUSE

A problem with Internet Explorer 3.x prevents navigation to the anchor.

RESOLUTION

Use two pound sign's (#) instead of one before the anchor name (for example, [[1]] Internet Explorer 3.x will interpret this as having one pound sign and navigate to the anchor.

STATUS

Internet Explorer 4.0 does not exhibit this behavior and ignores the extra pound sign if present.
