it is part of html 4.01:

http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/intro/intro.html#h-2.1.2

it is part of the current html 5 draft:

http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-html5-20080610/history.html#scroll-to-fragid

i think it would be bad design to not include fragment identifiers in the html5
spec (in their html4 form or an improved form). html is a document format
intended for publishing and navigating hypertext, and factoring out fragment
identifiers into the media type registration only would send a very clear
message that they are regarded as add-on, and not as an integral part of the
spec.
