HTML issues tagged as anchor.
In the days before HTML5, named anchors were used as a way to provide a link to a specific section of a document, for example:
<h2> <a name="section-5">Section 5</a> </h2>
Now in HTML5, the
name attribute is obsolete for
<a> tags, and instead, you can use the
id attribute of any element (not just
<a>) as a way to navigate directly to it, for example:
<h2 id="section-5">Section 5</h2>
