What is the easiest way to obtain link to a particular section of a document? For example, if you want to link to http://www.somepage.html#basic%5Ffacts you seem to need to either dig into the HTML or guess the name of the section. Are there any Firefox add-ons to help with this?

There is this Named Anchors Firefox extension that will add a new tab to the 'Page Info' dialog box.

This extension adds a new tab to Page Info with information about the named anchors in the current document.

Drag & Drop the address of a named anchor to the browser to open the page at the specified anchor


There also seems to be an alternate extension, Show anchors that may be a bit easier to use.
