I tried W3C's link checker, but got strange errors about whether the page I was checking even existed. Even their example URL returned a "document not found error," so evidently this tool doesn't work any longer.Say what now? I've used it routinely for years, with no problems. You weren't trying to enter that whole blahblah#anchor string into the URL field were you? It works from the other direction: Give it an URL, and it will check all links found on that URL, including fragments and supporting files.
it seems to show things in the following formYes, that's the form for bad fragments: it means that it found the document itself--it might even be the page you're checking in the first place--but not the named fragment. And then, if both are on your own site, you get to decide whether to change the link or the fragment name. Generally it's a mix of both.
