What you're saying is exactly what I'm saying, so I don't know where the difference of opinion is either. Like you say, the link and anchor text is on-page where it appears and off-page for the page it links to. Seems simple and I didn't know there could be (is?) confusion about it, or a need to discuss it, but since it was brought up as an 'error' from the wording of the OP, I think for future readers it's important to try to eliminate confusion... IMO this is a 'tough enough' arena for competing without having to wonder if on-page really means on the page it's on or if it really means something else, so I figured I would try to clarify what is AFAIK generally accepted terminology in this line of work.
