Abstract

This article describes a browser technology which allows users to create and share links to arbitrary areas of content within a web page. This is done through the creation of Enhanced Scope Links (ESLs) which encapsulates additional meta-data on the fragment identifier of the URL which can be used to relocate the target content within the page when navigating to the URL. The technology used to relocate target content is designed such that it is robust to changes in the content or structure of a web page making it useful in a dynamic web 2.0 environment.
