Er, but isn't that the way that anchors *always* work?
I don't mean just PmWiki anchors, but HTML anchors in general.
You can always scroll backwards up the page.  It would be pretty awful
if you couldn't!

If you really want to ensure that when someone clicks on "X", they will
*only* have access to the list of "X" documents, then rather than having
the entire list on one page, make separate pages for each letter, and
link to those pages rather than using anchors.
