Following up on this answer, suggesting long answers to summarize their contents, I find it would be useful to be able to link to internal specific parts of a (long) post.

For instance, this kind of long answers are often very instructive, but also overwhelmingly wall-of-text-ish to be easily refered to. Headers do help (example), but if I want to emphasize the bottom list of the “On division by zero” section, you'll have to go dig it yourself.

Thus I request links to specific parts inside posts.

Separating lines as targets could do (numbering them), <here> could be an option… Anything making it possible to split answers into parts.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    Unfortunately, it's not possible (and suggested many times before). I tried to look really hard when I posted a question + 2 self answers with over 40k characters. What I did was to insert a Table of Contents at the top of each answer with consistent number prefixes, so that one can use Ctrl+F to find the relevant section. – Rob W Nov 18 '12 at 11:48
