Point standalone help to HTML anchor? [message #607687] Wed, 23 January 2008 16:37

Is there a way to position the help browser at an anchor
within an HTML file when using the standalone help?

In my experimentation, the following displays the file myFile.html
from my.plugin, with the browser window positioned at the top of the
file:

sa_help -command displayHelp /my.plugin/myFile.html

(Where 'sa_help' is shorthand for a big Java command line
that runs the standalone help.) The following, however, also
displays the file myFile.html positioned at the top:

sa_help -command displayHelp /my.plugin/myFile.html#myAnchor

even when the <a name="myAnchor"> </a> element is located far down
in the file. Is there some syntax that would allow me to display
myFile.html positioned at #myAnchor?

It's clearly possible for the help system to display a file at an
HTML anchor -- it does it properly if the anchor is contained in
the TOC or Index.

Thanks,
Doug
