Abstract:     Embodiments of the present invention use a new extension to the HTML language to support remotely specified named anchors. A remotely specified named anchor, when embedded within a source document, instructs a browser program to access a portion of a destination document indicated in the remotely specified named anchor. When the browser program reads a remotely specified named anchor such as<a href="Some Text">from the source document, the browser program performs the following steps: 1) the browser retrieves the destination file "bar.html" from the server "", 2) the browser searches the file bar.html for "Some Text", and 3) if the browser finds the character swing being searched for, then the browser displays the file bar.html, scrolled to the line containing the first character of the character string being searched for.
