Trying to read the docs on this page:

..when I click on the method links in the index (eg. "add"), the page does not scroll down to that method, even though there's room for the scrollbar to move there.

Oddly, the <A HREF=xxx> and <A NAME=xxx> markers seem to match up, so not sure what the problem is offhand.

I can see this problem in both firefox 2.0 and konqueror (default that comes with FC3), haven't checked other browsers.

I see the problem.. some of the <A NAME=xxx> entries include the '#' sign in the xxx name.. eg:

BEFORE: <A name="#Fl_Input_Choice.add">
 AFTER: <A name="Fl_Input_Choice.add">

Also of note, but probably not a problem, I notice some docs bundled in the FLTK 1.1.x tar ball have *single* quotes around the <a name=xxx> strings. I've never seen single quotes used in HTML, at least not in common usage, eg:

% pwd

% grep -i "<a name='" *
Fl_Input_Choice.html:<h4><a name='#Fl_Input_Choice.add'>void ..
Fl_Input_Choice.html:<h4><a name='#Fl_Input_Choice.clear'>void ..
Fl_Input_Choice.html:<h4><a name=''>void ..
Fl_Spinner.html:<h4><a name='Fl_Spinner.format'>void ..
Fl_Spinner.html:<h4><a name='Fl_Spinner.maximum'>void ..
[..]                        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Single quotes don't seem to affect browsing, just thought I'd point that out. The '#' signs are the real problem in the Fl_Input_Choice docs.

Fixed in Subversion repository.

FWIW, both single and double quotes are allowed when delimiting attribute values.
