Description From 2006-01-29 11:46:48 PST
The URL included above is a "Permalink" pointer to a named anchor within the page of a news blog. Instead of scrolling directly to the named anchor tag, the latest version of Safari scrolls to the end of the page.

The URL works as expected (correctly) in latest production versions of Safari, Firefox and OmniWeb. The bug has been present for some time in the nightly build versions.

Reduced test case

Reduced test case attached, although a smaller one may be possible.

The <font> tag in front of the <a name=""> tag is significant.

Is there a patch available for this?  I didn't see anything checked into Subversion (yet), either.  How can it be marked RESOLVED/FIXED?

Reopening since there is no patch and nothing was committed to Subversion to fix this bug.

How strange. . . I committed this on my work machine yesterday, but I guess something went wrong b/c this change is not in TOT.  Maybe there was a conflict in one of the files and the commit didn't go through.  Sorry!
