    JS to open link + jump to page #anchor

    I am doing an IDX portal (idx=real estate home search page).

    I am using a few different platforms that communicate with iframes, its a little murky, but its stable.

    When I click a link on my parent page, I want it to jump to a page anchor just above the iframe as it loads the href content. I'm not the best at JS, but here is my solution, and its not working. Help?

    my function-
    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function headAnchor()
    {
    window.location.hash="head"; 
    }
    </script>
    page anchor-
    Code:
    <a name="#head">
    link-
    Code:
    <a href="http://my.dom/mylink.php" target="iframe" onclick="headAnchor()">

    What am i missing?

    Oh, it works in IE (but only with compatibility view turned on). but not firefox or chrome. Whats the FF/C fix?

    <a name="head"></a> w/o '#' ----> this is the point where the page will be scrolled to

    <a href="#head">head</a> -----> this is clicked to scroll the page to the anchor described above

    in XHTML or HTML5 use id attribute instead of name
