I created an anchor and I referenced it from another page.
When I click on the link, instead of going to the exact location where the anchor is, it shows the bottom part instead.
The upper part (the one with "escape characters/sequences") is hidden and I cannot see it. Is that a default behaviour? Because I assume links to anchors will redirect me to exact spot on the page.
Use the anchor before the intended text or line where you want the page to jump to with the anchor link. In the example you provided, for any user to be able to land at the beginning of column 23, add the anchor right before escape characters/sequences and not at the end (as in the pic).
Anchors navigate you to the line/text/heading that comes after the anchor. :)
Hope this helps!
