When navigating between named anchors in IE, the
window.location object changes to reflect the change in the URL. This is correct. However, the
window.location object should also change when you use the back or forward buttons, or the
history.forward() methods, to move between these anchors, and in IE 6.0 and IE 6.1, it does not.
Opera has exactly the opposite bug: it never shows the hash.
