Anchor tags not working in AvantGo

I have set up a very basic html page/channel through AvantGo that contains anchor tags so the PDA user can jump up and down the page rather than scrolling. I've loaded the page on my PDA but the anchor tags aren't functioning properly. Has anyone had this happen to them? Any thoughts on protocol for the anchor tags to make them run on the PDA channel?

My tags are set up as follows:

anchor tag
<a name="monday"></a>

link to anchor
<a href="pdaschedule.html#monday">Monday</a>

Nevermind. Figured it out. The anchor tag has to be written as follows:

<a name="monday">&nbsp;</a>

There has to be something contained within the tag itself. A non-breaking space did the trick.
