named anchor containing (hash | pound | # | score) not linking properly
User-Agent: Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040115 Firebird/0.8.0+ The example page is very poorly formatted HTML, but it shows a strange linking behavior. <a href="foo.html# #123">foo</a> to <a name=" #123"> is what I expect to work, but Internet Explorer 6 SP1 works from <a href="foo.html#123"> also, so pages get coded up this way. Maybe in quirks mode allow this type of linking to work as well? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit page, click anchor link. Actual Results: Watch Moz/Firebird not follow the link. Expected Results: In strict mode, this is okay, but quirks I'd think this would work.
If someone could attach a simplified testcase here that could help in resolving this, depending on what we want to do with this bug.
I believe the issue if that <a href="#foo" /> will link to <a name="#foo" /> in IE... we've had bugs on this before and wontfixed them, iirc....
(In reply to comment #2) > I believe the issue if that <a href="#foo" /> will link to <a name="#foo" /> in > IE... we've had bugs on this before and wontfixed them, iirc.... This "feature" is the only thing keeping a coworker of mine using IE. Should I tell him to stick with it? Other than that, you can close this out if it's wontfix.
Works in IE6.0.28 but not in Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8a1) Gecko/20040520 or in Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8 or in Opera 7.23
That's because what IE does is just WRONG.
