Hi all!

I have never had to think about this, and can't seem to figure out how to do it now...

I have a series of links to anchors within a number of pages, and the anchor name is an id number. I want to get that id so I can use jQuery to add a class to the list item in question and highlight the item for the user.

How can I get that value??

code:
alert(location.hash);

Thanks

That works great when linking between pages.
I have some that link to another anchor on the same page, and in that case, I can't get the current hash value with this method.

Any thoughts on how to get the correct value in that case?

CSS only solution ( won't work in IE though ):

code:
#id:target
{
outline:2px solid solid;
}

No need for an extra class or whatever crazy thing.
