labels in web pages

We have a number of pages on our site which use labels which I cannot
find defined (with for example <a name= > ) but which work perfectly
well. 'top' and 'side bar' in particular.

eg 'top' in
http://www.bangor.ac.uk/ced/studentguide.htm

Is it defined somewhere in the page, or is it pre-defined in html?
If pre-defined, is there a definitive list of them?

Regards
Phil

Your clue should lie in the realization that it's pretty far-fetched
to think that a browser would know, without being told, which part of
the page is the "side bar".

Some browsers will jump to the top of the page for *any* fragment
(fragment = the part of a URL to the right of the # sign) that isn't
defined on the page. "#top" has no intrinsic meaning; it could just as
easily be "#ashfdioasdhf" .

You don't need <a name="..."> to create a proper target for a URL
fragment, however: the ID attribute on *any* element will serve the
same purpose in modern browsers.

Some browsers go to the top of the page when use *any* fragment identifier
that is not specified in the page.

Nope, this is either error-handling or browser-specific extensions.

I am creating a database for a small department in a university. Each student in their database can have 2 mailing addresses. They wanted mailing labels pulling just the 1st address. No problem. However, now they want a second label for students that have a second mailing address. Any ideas of how I can accomplish this? Thanks in advance for any help.

I print mailing labels out of Access 2000 databases about 3 to 4 times a week. I have been having problems with one thing since I have been printing mailing labels. I print mailing labels by using a report I created and then printing them on a continuous-feed dot matrix printer. I used the Label Wizard, chose the query I created, picked the 'Avery USA 4146' (1 7/16" x 4") - 3 across, paper size: 'Fanfold 358mm x 12 in', and Printer:...

Anyone have any idea what could have happened. Building a new report accepts...

I know this is probably an easy question, but I could not find/figure it out. Basically, I am printing mailing labels with a "Sorting/Grouping" section that groups the label types together. Also, I am using a "Report Header" to show a count of how many total labels that are being printed. Now, my problem is that without the "Report Header", the spacing is perfect. But, when I add the Report Header, it gets shifted downwards and the...

Is there another way to put labels on a page other than asp:label? I have been building a page where I use a label to display the calculated result of some imput. I do it using Javascript. But since the asp:label equates to a <span> I have to create nodes to display the new text. The problem is that as soon as I change pages (whether by post or just using a back button), I lose whatever changes I made. I don't have that problem with...

Hi, I know Access allows for easy construction of a report setup to print labels from a table/query, etc. I've done that one. It works pretty well for what I need. However, is there an example anywhere that someone can point me to that is more flexible? And, I mean flexible in this regard:

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
