Help people jump to the topic they need with samepage links

If your web page has several topics with a heading over each topic, you might make those headings into a table of contents at the top of the page. A short table of contents at the top of a web page helps people

• get a quick overview of what's on the page

• jump to a specific part of the page if they want just that part

Figure 10-15 is a good example of same-page links from a U. K. group that is very concerned about making its web site easy to use. (Thanks to Tom Brinck for suggesting this example.)

What do you call the headings as links at the top of the page? I've heard: "anchor links," "in-page links," and "same-page links." I'm calling them "same-page links" here.
