Marker and Content Anchors

Marker and Content Anchors

The most commonly used anchors are called
anchors. These anchors are often used as a pair:
  • A
    anchor labels a location in a document.
  • A
    anchor retrieves text from the location.
To understand these anchors, imagine a printed questionnaire. The first line typically asks for the person's last name and first name, with each label followed by a blank space to receive the information. The printed labels
Last Name
First Name
anchors, and the blank spaces are
anchors. The anchors provide a means to home in on the data and extract it from the source document.
