Reading URL anchor refrence

Hi,

I have a URL in my app that looks like this:

http://codinginparadise.org/my_ajax_app#helloworld

How - using javascript - can I read the "helloworld" from the URL
string?

self.document.location.hash

actually to get just "hellowworld" and not "#helloworld" that
would be like

self.document.location.hash.substring(1)
Hope that helps

If the URL contains spaces (or other escaped characters):
http://codinginparadise.org/my_ajax_app#hello%20world
then use:
unescape(self.document.location.hash.substring(1))
