Perhaps it would be nice to indicate which occurence you want to jump to. This 
can be done with a new attribute for the A tag, like this :

 OCCURENCE=FIRST|LAST|n|NEXT|PREVIOUS

- FIRST: jump to the first occurence
- LAST: jump to the last occurence
- n: jump to the n-th occurence
- NEXT: when used repeatedly rotate through every occurence within 
  the page from first to last
- PREVIOUS: when used repeatedly rotate through every occurence 
  within the page from last to first
