An "anchor" is just the <A> tag, whose most common attributes are
HREF= and NAME= (both may appear in the same tag, if desired).

POST is not a command, it's a value for the METHOD attribute of <FORM>.
The actual command is a URL which is a value for the ACTION attribute.

You may want to do some further studying of HTML.
(This list is not the place for that; look around the Web itself, as
there are plenty of tutorials free for the viewing.)
