Note: Jumping to a part of the post

Today I learned how to jump from one part of a webpage to another. Or in general, create a tag so that you can jump from one webpage directly to a specific section of another. I don't think it will be efficient to go back and change links that are not yet in this format (e.g. when you see previous game (link here):next game (link here) and click on one of the links, it would just take you to the post, not directly to the correct section), which would have been convenient. However, I will for definitely use this feature for future links.

In any case, it works as follows:
The tag you use on the same page is:
<a href="#stringabc123">This is the text</a>
The tag you use coming from another webpage, but from the same domain is:
<a href="/2010/05/note-jumping-to-part-of-post.html#stringabc123">This is the text</a>
The tag you use coming from another webpage is:
<a href="http://adventuresofagradstudent.blogspot.com/2010/05/note-jumping-to-part-of-post.html#stringabc123">This is the text</a>
Down somewhere below...
<span id="stringabc123">Insert whatever here...</span>
Note that...
...this webpage is:
http://adventuresofagradstudent.blogspot.com/2010/05/note-jumping-to-part-of-post.html
with domain
http://adventuresofagradstudent.blogspot.com
and that
#stringabc123
gets added on to the end of this website.

The above looks like this:
The tag you use on the same page is:
This is the text
The tag you use coming from another webpage, but from the same domain is:
This is the text
The tag you use coming from another webpage is:
This is the text
Down somewhere below...
Insert whatever here...
While I could have looked at a how-to, I just tried to figure this stuff out looking at the html source code of a wikipedia article that does the same type of linking.

Note:
I also learned that to display a '<' or a '>', type '&lt;' and '&rt;' respectively. To display an '&' type '&amp;'.

Remark:
In order for me to write '&amp;' I needed to write '&amp;amp;'. And to write that last expression, I wrote '&amp;amp;amp;'. And so on and so forth...
