understand the problem.

new primitive /pdfmark to PostScript which allows you to insert PDF
code into PostScript files.

It's described in Adobe TechNote 5150:

pdfmark Reference Manual
#5150   11/16/99   [48](PDF: 511 KB / 98 pages)

but Google resists to tell me the URL.

If you say <a name="foo">some text</a> then "some text" is highlighted
and people can click on it.

If you say <a name="foo"></a>some text then there is still a hyperlink
but how can it be accessed?

But this is the source, not the target.  The target can be just a spot
on a page.  Does a target really span some text?  Isn't it just
\label{foo} in LaTeX?

Reinhard
