I'm not *that* fluent in HTML...
Here's the link structure I have always used on the "source" page:
...and at the anchor point on the target page:
<a name="rcl"> </a>
I don't know what "id" or "name" is re: anchors, where to put it, or how to code it. As I said, the way these have been coded for the last ten years worked fine with other browsers....
Thanks for the help!

you'd pretty much answered your own question about 'name' & 'id' - but forget that.
on a brief look I thought it was related, Safari dropping support for 'name' in xhtml... but looking again, it's not that at all.
change your links to this form: http://performanceallies.com/about/bios/#rcl (iow, drop the www, since they're re-directed by your server anyway)
When most browsers get a 3xx redirect response, they add any #xyz anchor to the new url
Safari doesn't, so your '#rcl' is lost

Still don't know what "id" or "name" are, or where they show up... Didn't understand the info at "3xx" either.
I did discover I had to delete both "www." from the domain & add the forward slash before the anchor tag in the URL/pathname before Safari would respond properly. (Firefox doesn't seem to care, haven't gotten to testing on IE yet.)
So it appears that Safari requires different coding than Firefox or IE, or at least they're more tolerant of older standards? Are there other Safari issues I should keep my eyes open for?
I haven't gotten a satisfactory answer why my domain keeps reverting from <http://www.performanceallies.com> to <http://performanceallies.com> ... it didn't used to. If this glitch is fixed, with Safari (& other stuff) respond to either type of URL entry?
