HREF that instructs browser to position doc at END of doc

Is there an HREF anchor construct that allows me to instruct the
browser to start the display from the document's end? I do not have the
access to the the referred document, hence I cannot insert a # anchor
at its end.

Hoping for something like href a="ABC.html#_END_" where _END_ would be
some sort of special syntax rather than a user-created anchor in the
document.

thanks,

Nothing you can do then.

Nope.

Whenever questions like this appears, it's more often than not a result
of the "wrong approach to a problem".

Perhaps if you describe what you _really_ need, it may be possible to
find a workable solution. But what you wrote up here is nil...

My guess is there may be a JavaScript solution. You could explore the
Window.ScrollTo() and Window.ScrollBy() methods, but the problem remains of
knowing how much to move. You might ask in a JavaScript group perhaps?

You can get coordinate information from the Anchor elements in the
Document.Anchors[] array in JavaScript from Version 1.2. Alternatively, in
IE4 and Netscape 6 and later (dunno about other browsers) you can invoke the
focus() method on Document elements to ensure the window scrolls to make
them visible.

Browser compatibility issues call for wide testing, of course.
