However, one discussion of policy has recently come
That's over whether to allow links from article [[Z]]
to section [[#Y]] in article [[X]], through the markup "[[X#Y]]";
or whether to allow links only from the same article [[X]],
through the markup "[[#Y]]".
We have allowed such links since nearly a year ago, but you had to make
an anchor yourself by putting in some HTML tag with an 'id="anchorname"'
The discussion is whether to automatically _create_ anchors from
headers, which is needed for Erik's proposed automatic table of contents
generation for pages with more than three headers.
The anchor names would change if the header text is changed, so if a
header is changed, a link specifically to it will end up just going to
the whole article instead of that section specifically.
