Are you saying Netscape ignores the fragment identifier; it doesn't scroll to
the anchor?

To be clear, where on <http://santek.no-ip.org/~st/tests/longdesc/> I say
"iCab [...] indicates the anchor" I didn't mean to imply that this has
anything to do with its longdesc implementation. iCab always indicates an
anchor when you follow a URL with a fragment identifier. It does, because the
usual UA behaviour of merely scrolling there[*] doesn't work if the anchor is
at the bottom of a page.
