Translate metadata to field content

I'm still working on htmltext in a field. There are anchors that indicate positions elsewhere 
in the file. A browser will automatically find and scroll to the right place in the text. I 
need to reproduce that.

Is there a way to translate an anchor like "#12345" to the location in the visible field text 
it links to?

I've thought of a couple of alternate ways to do it involving lookup files, but it would be 
better to do a direct translation to avoid the extra overhead.
