What is this jump link technique called?


Recommended Posts

I just noticed that the W3C website uses links like the following:
https://www.w3.org/TR/UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20/seizure-does-not-violate.html#:~:text="Flashing" refers to content that,users could turn it off.

The technique doesn't appear to work with Firefox, but seems fine with both Chrome and Edge. Does anyone know what this technique is called?

As is usual for the web client industry, one browser (Chromium, so Edge gets it too) decided to implement this capability without it being an actual standard yet. It looks funky, but Google wants it so we're probably going to get it.

Thanks! I highly doubt I'll use the technique. Text changes too much for me to feel comfortable using this to create links on a website. However, maybe the technique would be useful for pointing out something on a website to a colleague / stakeholder.
