what to do when you have a fragment identifier AND a

IMHO the first makes more sence (and it's what O'Reilly quote in their
JavaScript books). The fragment should follow the full url (including the
search criteria) as it's of greater specificity (ie the uri codes the
script, the search string codes which of the availiable script outputs is
produced, and the fragment identifies a location within the generated page)

But presumably there _must_ somewhere be a defininition (which i was
fruitlessly looking for just last week)
