      Description

      The TOC anchors at the top of the POM and Settings Reference pages do not work in Firefox. It appears that all of the anchor links are capitalized while the anchor labels are all lower case. Also, some of the links contain spaces while the labels contain underscores. This is causing the links to fail in Firefox.

        This still is not working in my emvironment: Windows XP SP2 with both Firefox 2.0.0.2 IE 7.

        For example, in the source code for pom.html, the anchor link looks like this:

        <a href="#What is the POM?">

        But the anchor tag looks like this:

        <a name="what_is_the_pom">

        Not the difference in the capitalization, the mixed use of spaces and underscores and the missing question mark in the anchor tag.

        Are these simply static HTML pages? If so, I'm happy to provide you the patch or updated page with corrected links.
        IMHO, this is not a Firefox issue, because it interprets the HTML correctly.

        This patch fixed the HTML anchors in the top menu, in order to match the target names.
