Snippet links to page fragment identifiers (hash marks) started showing up in the Google SERPs in the second half of 2009, I know we had a discussion about it but so far I can't locate it. I will share the link if I do.
In fact, Google now has a patent about creating an "artificial anchor" [webmasterworld.com] to part of a page - even if the page itself does NOT have its own fragment identifier. So far that has not shown up in practice.
