Tipp of the day: Jump to anchor in htmlviewer

Let's say you have loaded a website to your htmlviewer, e.g. this one: http://www.monkeybreadsoftware.net/addressbook-abpersonmbs.shtml. Now you want to jump with a button to anchor #16 (on the bottom of the sample page). How to do this?

LoadURL with "#16" will not work as well as passing javascript to it. The only solution I got to work is to use our javascript execute methods:
  Sub Open() 
    htmlviewer1.LoadURL "http://www.monkeybreadsoftware.net/addressbook-abpersonmbs.shtml"
  End Sub
  Sub Action() 
    if TargetWin32
      call HTMLViewer1.IERunJavaScriptMBS "window.location = ""#16"""
    elseif TargetMacOS then
      call HTMLViewer1.EvaluateJavaScriptMBS "window.location = ""#16"""
      // not supported
    end if
  End Sub
