Link to a webpage

I found the following question on another forum and the person who posted it never did receive an answer. I thought it was an interesting question so reposted it here, as I don't have a clue how to answer this one.
Appreciate any replies.

I've got a question about creating a link to a webpage.
I know that if I want to have a link "auto scroll" to a specific point on a page with a number, I can use a link like this that has the "number" after a "#" symbol, for example: http://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/owadisp.show_document?p_table=STANDARDS&p_id=9880#1910.303(g)(1)(i)
But... does anyone know if there is a way to have a link auto scroll to a particular string of characters that are not numbers?
For example, let's say I wanted to create a link to the following page and have it scroll down automatically to "Appendix A", anyone have any ideas if this is possible or how to do it?
http://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/owad...IVES&p_id=1817
Appendix A is near the bottom of the above page.

take a look at the post here:

look at the code used to take you to the letters of the alphabit.

in case you have trouble understanding it, all you need to do is add a a href like: < a href="#b"> and that goes to the < a name="b"> wherever you put it on the page. there has to be some reference written in the code.
