I have to use scrollIntoView instead of the standard use of anchor links, and it worked just fine on previous versions, and now turns out it doesn't work anymore. I also tried ScrollTo, but no luck.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Implement an onClick event
2.Run javascript:document.all('AnchorName').scrollIntoView();
Actual Results:  
Nothing happens

Expected Results:  
Scrolling the selected element into view

I'd vote to bump the importance of this bug. scrollIntoView is needed by Web2.0 apps (and also for implementing the WAI-ARIA activedescendant pattern of managed focus).

Here is another test:
