Linking within document

Link only works first time, subsequent clicks ignored.

Has anyone noticed this 'quirk' when using Opera 8.54, not sure about other versions. When linking within a document such as when returning to the top of a web page, the link only works the first time, subsequent clicks are ignored. What I have done is this,

<a name="top" id="top"></a>

is added to the top of the web page and then,

<a href="#top">top</a>

is used as the link.

With Opera, if you click 'top' you are returned to the top of the page, ok just as expected. But if you scroll to the bottom of the page and try again, it won't work. It only works the first time.

Is this just a quirk of Opera, or is there someway around this?

Many thanks.

Hello again,

Just tried Opera 8.02 and it works as it should.
