In the attached link, the navigation bar has sub categories which link to
anchors on the associated page (links are in an xml file loaded by the Flash
navigation bar). These anchors generate a page not found error. This error does
not occur on Mozilla Browser or Internet Explorer. These anchors do not function
in Netscape 4.8 also.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select "Member services" in navigation bar
2. Select sub category "<any>"
3. Error appears

Actual Results:  
The requested URL /LCECU04/n_members.htm#plan24 was not found on this server.
Apache/2.0.50 (Unix) Server at Port 80

Expected Results:  
Entered page and scrolled to appropriate anchor on page.

I found the bug in more link,
None of the links with anchors to the same page dont work.
I must say this must be made a critical bug, as users would get irritated by
such a important function required for a minimal browsing exp. 
For just to browse the above URL i need to switch to IE, which bugs me above all..
Dont do this. U will end up the same way as IE is going to go down.

The link is dead, reporter do you have an updated link?

p.s. Pradeep that link doesn't work due to a coding error on the page, see Bug
