Hyperlinks to the same page

Hi there, could someone please help me with this, I'm tearing my hair out!
I'm trying to link to another part of a JSP page using the normal HTML method, ie
<a href="#test">jump to test</a>
<a name="test">jumped</a>
But as the page is produced by a servlet and a JSP, the link is pointing to http://..../ServletName#test, which is reloading the whole page and making it really slow. Does anyone know how to make it stay on the same page? Maybe using JavaScript?
Thanks for your help, Adam

finally remembered how to do this. You need to set the following meta tag in the header of your page:
<base href="http://localhost:8100/yourapp/locationofyourjsp">
that will resolve the links correctly

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
