Linking To Specific Section

I know how to create links to a diffrerent page, like this, but I can't figure out how to make links to different parts of a page. I've seen this page, but I'm wondering how to set up the subjects. Any help on how I can do this would be excellent.

They are called anchors and there are some instructions: here and here.
There are a few more tips in Markup.
You also asked recently about ; you can just copy and paste the symbols. To make them a little larger you will have to use: span style="font-size:20px", between< >, as shown in Markup.
If you had an e-mail address on your page, I could send you better examples.

Anchor Question
Do our info pages have anchors? If not would it be useful if the different sections had them? Remarks, Food, Habitat, etc. An editor can probably add them individually, or add sub-anchors in the middle of a section, but it might be good if the standards were already there.

I don't think there are any.
I don't see any anchors.

They're there
I should have viewed the source first, they are there. Each one is linkable
Use underscore in place of a space (See_Also, Internet_References). Maybe this should be in the help markup section?

easy way to get the links
At the top of every info page, between the name and the representative images, there are anchor links to every section that's filled in. If you click on them, the full path will appear in your browser's address bar, and you can copy/paste it from there.

You can also right-click on an anchor link, select "Properties" in the drop-down menu, and copy the path from that - it's a little more work for your mouse hand, though.

All Info pages have this func
All Info pages have this functionality, through the use of the "id" attribute instead of the "name" attribute.

Technically, any "<a>" tag is an anchor, and any optional parameters that can be specified with a tag are considered attributes.

The problem with adding this stuff to the Help section is figuring out where to stop. See here for example.

That was very helpful. Here is where I first figured it out.
