If I understand the question, I think most browsers will do this for
you if your window opening script accepts a url:


or just pass the function the hash and add it in the window opening function.

For browsers that don't do it for you, maybe putting this in
glossary.html will help:


>I have link to open a new window: (watch wrap)
><a href="glossary.html" target="_blank" onClick="javascript:infowin();return
>false;"><img src="images/bookc.gif" alt="Glossary" name="Glossary" width="16"
>height="16" border="0" id="Glossary"></a>
>But I not only want to open the window "glossary.html", but I
>want to land on the anchor "name". Isn't there a way to do this?
>I've drawn a blank...
