Direct Entry into Blogger Blog

The name= mechanism

Old HTML allowed direct entries into a html page, using name.
   The original way was an insert of ‹name="Blabla"›, immeditarely or  a bit later followed by a closing ‹/a›. (Note that instead of < and > I use ‹ and › here so as not to confuse Blogger.)
   Usually this entry, addressed as http://URL-of-the-page#Blabla, worked even when the “closing” ‹/a› was missing.  
   Direct entries lead you to the selected label. It winds up on top of the displayed page, unless the page is too small, try http://www.joern.de/hoedl.htm#Wald as an example.

This mechanism works in Blogger as well, slightly modified.
1. Never forget the “closing ‹/a›”.
2. As Blogger sorts blog entries by months (at least in my case), notmal links to blog entries (“posts”) look like
indicating that the post named “Tomtom-GoBasic-Tipps” was created in July 2019 for Blogabissl.
   If you want to place an extra entry point there, add to the HTML-Code at the point to which you want to lead the viewer, something like
‹a href="https://www.blogger.com/null" name="Bozen"›Direct entry at https://blogabissl.blogspot.com/2019/07/tomtom-gobasic-tipps.html#Bozen‹/a›.
   A single href-plus-name command is all you need!
· The first bracket ‹› contains a reference to the blog name and
with name= the name you chose for the entry. This /null will not work!
· A visbible – and optional – announcement of this entry should follow, giving its name to the reader. Unless you want to hide the extra entry.
· The closing ‹/a› ends the sequence to satisfy the browser.
   If you just enter ‹a name="Name"› and ‹/a› the Blogger software will replace it. I tried it here, and it results in ‹a href="https://www.blogger.com/null" name="Name"›.  ‹/a› will remain. Again: Note that this /null will not work!
   With Blogger you can add HTML commands directly into the text, you need not always switch to the HTML view, very pratical to enter a subscript, for example CO‹sub›2‹/sub›: CO2. And don’t use ‹sup› with p, the 2 will end up being “square” like this2, a superscript: Sub like submarine, sup like super high.
   Now don’t expect that you can address 
https://www.blogger.com/null#Name .  Get yourself a permalink from the right side column. Let me try. Blogger produces https://blogabissl.blogspot.com/2019/08/direct-entry-into-blogger-blog.html as I’m typing this in August 2019. (Watch out, typing errors in the blog’s title will end up in the permalink and stay there forever, even if you later correct them.)
   So the side entry by Name will be:
   Don’t try this one. The page is to small to show the effect. Try for example
https://blogabissl.blogspot.com/2019/07/tomtom-gobasic-tipps.html#Bozen .

Good luck. Let me know if you get problems.
