Wednesday, September 19, 2007 12:14 AMI have an html page with flash objects embedded into it and try to access the page with some anchor name appended to it, IE appends the anchor name also to the page title. Is this by design ao a bug? Is there any workaround for not displaying anchor in Title bar.
Here is the sample code:
<title>My Test Page</title></head>
<object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/kKo9oUAFQ_A"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/kKo9oUAFQ_A" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>
Save this code as test.html in some folder and then access the page from IE.
1. C:\TestFolder\test.html ---------- Title shows correctly.(My Test Page)
2. C:\TetsFolder\test.html#123 ----- #123 gets appended to title.(My Test Page#123)
Similarly if you keep on adding flash objects to the page you will get as many anchor names appended to the title bar.(My Test Page#123#123....... and so on).
Firefox displays the title correctly in both the scenarios.

Tuesday, September 08, 2009 10:23 AMHey guys,
In the interim why not just add some underscores to the end of your doc title ie; "index.htm _________somewords__________" that way it'll push the anchors off screen:
check out my site and see it work by clicking on the images at the bottom of the home page that has a tonne of remote page anchors:
Could this affect the results with search engines?
