May be it is plugin feature (AR7 plugin for Safari, MacOSX 10.4)

My experiment shows that Page=12 takes priority over an anchor:
even if I have an anchor with a name Page=12 


leads to page 12, not where anchor is, and even if page 120 does not
exist in the document, and an anchor Page=120 exists, still

http://www.myserver.com/mydoc.pdf#Page=120 leads to the last page of
the document
but not to the anchor

All the best.   Victor
