Linking inside a page doesn't work

Linking inside a page doesn't work for me the way explained in the help (using an anchor). I'm on a Mac. Is the procedure different?

As far as I can see, you are doing it correctly.

Just to be sure:
You don't check the functionality of the link while still being in Edit mode, right?
Is the page long enough and are the link and the anchor far away enough from each other to really see the effect? If your page is not longer than your screen (no scrollbar) or both link and anchor are close to each other you won't see any effect, obviously. 

Yes, I'm checking out of Edit mode. And yes, the link and the anchor are not close together. I'll try and add a bunch of crap in between them to see id that could be the problem. This isn't different for Macs and PC's, is it? Because I noticed that some of the commands and structure is PC based. 

Can you explain what you did and what happened?

I created an anchor and added a link as per the help. The only thing I noticed is that this help may have been written for PCs, not Macs. 
The anchor and link are on the same page. See the screen shots. When I do this, nothing happens. I click the link and I don;t go to the ipTables anchor.
Thanks,
Charlie
