I'm going to ask a stupid question ... don't everybody laugh at once.

Is it not true that everything past the hash (#alice) is not transmitted
back to the server when a browser clicks on a hyperlink ?   If that is true,
then the server would not be able to serve anything different if a browser
clicked upon http://example.com/foaf.rd
<http://example.com/foaf.rdf#alice>or if they clicked upon
http://example.com/foaf.rd <http://example.com/foaf.rdf#alice>#alice .   If
that is true, and it probably isn't, then is not the Semantic Web crippled
from using that techniqe to distinguish between resources and at the same
time hyper linking between those different resources?

Ok, you can stop laughfing now.
