How to create a jump to link

Jump link is used for jumping between part of a page.

Wonder how to create a jump link?

Ie: jump from the top of the page to the bottom? This will comes handy if you have a very long page.
Or jump to top from the bottom of a page?

Jump link consist two “HTML a” tags, the link & the destination.

Case: jump to the bottom of the same page.
This is the code where you want to place the jump link:

<a href="#bottom">Jump to bottom</a>

This is the code you need to place at the destination.

<a name="bottom"></a>

Case: jump to the top of the same page.
This is the code where you want to place the jump link:

<a href="#top">Jump to top</a>

This is the code you need to place at the destination.

<a name="top"></a>

Case: jump to the specific part of another page (ie: http://crushedge.com/2008/12/03/how-to-backup-and-restore-putty-settings/).
This is the code where you want to place the jump link:

<a href="http://crushedge.com/2008/12/03/how-to-backup-and-restore-putty-settings/#somewhere">Jump to somewhere</a>

This is the code you need to place at the destination (another-page.html).

<a name="somewhere"></a>

Good luck!
