html:base and named anchors

I am using a page that dynamically creates links to named anchors in the same page. When I added the struts html:base tag to the page it stopped them from working. Probarbly because the html:base tag is causing the browser to fully qulaify my supposedly page relative named anchors? (such as #top and so on.)
What is the best way to get round this??

Could somebody please answer this post if at all possible - still having no luck figuring it out.
Basically I am have built a list of links dynamically that looks like this when viewing the html source:
<a href="#1">Question 1 blah blah </a>
<a href="#2">Question 2 blah blah </a>
and so on ...
(it's an FAQ page with answers linking to questions with named anchors.)
The problem is that, when using html:base, the browser tries to resolve the links from the base path, so the browser no longer see them as simple named anchors.
Any help at all would be much appreciated.
I agree. Here's the link:
