Greetings,

I was surprised that I could not find a specification within the HTML RFC's
for what to do when you have a fragment identifier AND a querystring.  For
example, which would be correct?:

1) mypage.asp?myvar=value#myfragment

or

2) mypage.asp#myfragment?myvar=value

To me, the second seems more intuitive, but fails in Internet Explorer.
Only the first works in I.E. and Netscape.  Have I overlooked some
documentation on this?
