IIRC, over ten years ago, I dropped managing of URLs plus #NAME
anchors in the history design. It was probably because it is
possible to grow the history data excessively and it won't get

What emacs-w3m does then is to retrieve the contents of `bla',
render it, and jump to `#mla'. Only `bla' is significant for
almost all the progress of work, so emacs-w3m mainly manages it
for all the time.
Maybe it is not easy to make the history manage #NAME anchors and
doesn't seem to be worth taking trouble. So, I will probably not
have an urge to do it now and forever. Sorry.
