How to create links to sections on the same page in HTML
To create links to a link within the page, two HTML tags need to be used.
This first tag is almost the same as any other HTML tag you would use to create a link to another page. However, to create a bookmark, you must start the link with a # (pound symbol,) which represents a name statement, used in the next tag. When the user clicks on Top, the computer would then go to the name tag, if found on the same page of the link.
Tip: Today, all browsers recognize top as being the top of the page. If you want the visitor to go to the very top of the page, the above tag can be left out and the A HREF link will still work.

Finally, a link can contain a web page with a bookmark that is on that page. In the above example, this code would create a link to our Safe Mode page and automatically move down to the Windows 2000 Safe Mode section.
In this first example, clicking on the "Top" link will scroll your browser to the top of this page.
In the next example, clicking on the "Windows 2000 Safe Mode" link will first open our Safe Mode page and then automatically scroll down to the Windows 2000 Safe Mode steps.
