well, take a look at this link:


notice any difference between this link and the one above? yes, the last
part of it, after the hash character.

i did NOT copy the address bar while looking at that section.
i looked the table of contents in the upper part of the page. i
right-clicked on the phrase "5 Criticism of the Constitution", and
clicked "copy link location", and i pasted it here.
another method. go to table of contents. left-click on one of the
sections mentioned in the table, and notice the URL in the address bar
changing. copy the new/changed URL, which should include the hash "#"
character followed by the name of the section.

hope this explains.
