How do we link to a specific message?

[It would be easier when linking to a message in a long thread to be able to link to a specific message.]

As an example ...

This thread has the following link:
http://www.webmasterworld.com/webmasterworld/4603568.htm

If you look to the left of your post, you'll see a
msg number. Take that number, and append it to the link thus:
http://www.webmasterworld.com/webmasterworld/4603568.htm#msg4603570

There are, unfortunately, some caveats:
1) Care must be taken when linking to posts on subsequent pages, or else it might not work properly.
2) Linking to a post from another post does not work (due to the #). You'll need to delink by wrapping your link in
[code] tags.
