Clicking on a link that refers to a position further down in the same page does
not reposition.

Could be similar to bug #60897

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/ready/default.asp
2. click on "Worldwide Windows XP Ready PCs"
   (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/ready/default.asp#worldwide)


Actual Results:  nothing happens (did not jump to link)

Expected Results:  Take me to http://www.linuxbase.org/ :-)

Page does not contain DOCTYPE - as far as I can see.
Confirming 2001083106 linux. No Javascript issue, instead :

<A HREF="#anchor">Link</A> works

<A NAME="#anchor"></A> used by M$ - won't work
<A NAME="anchor"></A> used by everyone else - works
I'll check if HTML 3/4 allows this statement

The use of # in Anchor names is allowed. But the link must be ##anchor then :
<A HREF="##anchor"></A><A NAME="#anchor"></A>

Mozilla accepts ##-links and #-anchors.

But the link must always have one additional #.

So this is a Tech Evangelism. Don't expect this one to be fixed in the next 3800
years =)

This page must have been redesigned, it isn't even long enough to move if a link
is clicked, not that any links mentioned are on the page.
