<a href="resources.htm#habitat">visit habitat</a>

you would also have to put name="habitat" somewhere on your resources page (not the top or you wont see the effect)

I thought the right way was always id="habitat", it still works the same though.

erm, yeah Rah is right you should use id, but see quotes below, both should be used in meantime.XHTML

The id Attribute Replaces The name Attribute
Note: To interoperate with older browsers for a while, you should use both name and id, with identical attribute values

Found it! Here we go:

"Note that in XHTML 1.0, the name attribute of these elements is formally deprecated, and will be removed in a subsequent version of XHTML."
