But RFC 2396 says:

   The semantics of a fragment identifier is a property of the data
   resulting from a retrieval action, regardless of the type of URI used
   in the reference.  Therefore, the format and interpretation of
   fragment identifiers is dependent on the media type [RFC2046] of the
   retrieval result.

To me, this indicates that fragment identifiers are media-type-specific,
so I think I must have misunderstood either what you said or what the
RFC said. Could you clarify, please?
