    I'm working with a galaxy s4.. and currently the default 'email' application.

    I'm trying to use a Table at the top of an email with anchor links to deeper areas of the email.

    toc link: <a href="#testanchor">test link to content</a>

    actual link lower in the email <a href=".....yahoo etc... " name="testanchor">Go to Yahoo!</a>

    If I use the yahoo or gmail email applets on android.. the anchor links work. Other email applications from the app store behave in a few different ways, but not of them are allowing the anchor links to work either..

    in the default email app on the S4, the anchor links try to open externally when you click on them, instead of scrolling down to the content they are targetting..

    other email apps highlight the targetted contents, and some other do nothing.

    I have went through lots of blogs.. trying various work arounds like putting display: block inline with the anchor tags.., id vs name or both.. other things , but none of that has worked either..

    any thoughts or suggestions.. ?
