Default Anchor Tag

Using the Anchor Tag need to reload a page (which is ok), but need to jump to a particular section of the page). The problem is the page reload is file, but upon reload jumping to a particular section on the page is what I am looking for..Any suggestions are welcome.
Tried putting a div tag enclosing the section that I wanted to have the focus upon, and then setting the focus via javascript when the required page reloaded. The problem is that since the section is down below in the page, when the page reloads upon the click of the anchor tag, the javascript for obvious reason does not find the div tag on the page (as the page has not completely reloaded).

Usually this is done with a named anchor tag:

<a name="focusHere"></a>

Then you link to the url that is on with the additional anchor name information:

<a href="mypage.aspx#focusHere">Click me</a>

If you want to do this with the javascript, you would typically put the javascript in the page's body tag onLoad handler do it fires after the page is loaded.
