OK, I can now see what you are talking about. It's that I do not recall 
ever going to any sites where I copied the URL after selecting a 
specific chapter/"index" to read and quote- I have always started from 
the beginning and read thru the text before finding what I wanted and 
then copying the URL which then, of course, copied the URL as it was at 
the beginning of the article.

"Problem" solved, and I learnt something :-) .
