Just so you know, the standard way of doing this now is to attach an
id="target" attribute to any element you like. That makes it easier
to, say, give a target to a section header:

Old: <h2><a name="foo">Foo</a></h2>
New: <h2 id="foo">Foo</h2>

(Of course, MediaWiki does this automatically for every header
anyway.) I can't remember browser compatability off the top of my
head, though.
