Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Often, when I cite the How to Ask or How to Answer pages, I'm mostly pointing out one particular paragraph (usually “Provide context for links”). So I'd like to write [please summarize the contents of your link](http://SITE/how-to-answer#link).

Please add anchors to the “How to Ask” and “How to Answer” pages.

May be the page need some more spaces on lower part to get anchors correctly work when someone clicked through those? – YOU May 1 '11 at 11:05
    
Or is there a better, more specific page in the FAQ somewhere to link to? – Blowski May 1 '11 at 17:24

It's been a little over 4 years since the accepted answer to the post that @Shog9 linked-to was last-edited. I don't know if adding functionality to the Markdown parser to transform text to anchor names/ids is what's holding the implementation of this up, but if it is, even just hard-coding in anchor names/ids for the sub-sections of just the How to Ask and How to Answer help pages would be really, well, helpful ;)
