Anchors - jump targets

Normally, topic links execute jumps to the top of the target topic. However, often you will also want to create jumps to some point inside a topic. This is done with "anchors" (sometimes also referred to as "bookmarks" in books on help). Anchors are named "jump targets" that you insert at any position within a topic so that you can jump to them with a link.
