If the page's title is using a special character, Confluence will change the link for the pageID information as it's stated in the following article:
Thanks Guilherme, but my question was not "what happens when page title contains special characters?", but "How does one link to anchors on such pages?" - and that remained unanswered. The regular way did not work - "Working with anchors" suggests me linking to the page using Confluence's regular URL syntax (http://myconfluence.com/display/spacekey/pagename#pagename-anchorname), which is simply non-feasible: all of my page titles contain non-latin (Cyrillic, to be more specific) characters, so these pages are only shown as viewpage.action URLs, they have no pretty URLs at all. I tried adding the anchor directly to the page URL (http://my.confluence.domain/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=12345678#my_anchor), and that also did not work - the page opened at the top, not at the anchor's position. Oh, another point to consider: that page is actually a blog post.
