Links to SAS Documentation not working?

In this thread, two users (me and LinusH) provide a link to SAS documentation pages, but neither opens to the desired page, they open to some sort of "cover page". What did we do wrong? How do we create a link to the exact page of interest? https://communities.sas.com/thread/56837 Note: IE9 on Windows 7 Pro (64 bit)

UPDATE: Ctrl-click on the link opens the desired documentation page; normal left click without the Ctrl doesn't take you to the desired page.

This isn't a problem with they way the link works in the communities. It has to do with how the named anchor works with some of the documentation releases and browsers. I never knew about the Control + Click option.  I will check with the documentation tech team and see if they have any additional recommendations for these links.

The SAS Web team and the documentation team verified that the problem exists in IE9 and IE10, and they have identified the problem.  They have pushed a fix.  Thanks for reporting this.
