Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The FAQ page (1, 2) contains incorrect local links. Now the ids have the form link-[name], and refs have the form #[name]. For example, faq#deletion doesn't point to the right place without JavaScript enabled. In the source code it looks like:

<h2 id="link-deletion" ...
<a href="#deletion" ...

There should be either id="deletion" or href="#link-deletion".

Thank you. I have NoScript by default. And the such links doesn't work in this case. I have updated the question. – ruvim Apr 5 '13 at 15:18
NoScript? Wow the web must be boring for you! – Hugo Dozois Apr 5 '13 at 15:19
Not at all ;) I suppose thy are smart enough to make good "progressive enhancement" solution that perfectly works in any case =) – ruvim Apr 5 '13 at 15:24

The link isnt broken; StackExchange is just using the feature a little bit differently then normal. They provide the content at the top of the page and in the normal place instead of just jumping to it on the page. Note the link you provided shows the requested content in a highlighted box at the very top of the page and also more near the bottom which is its normal location.
