PS original kindle had a "browser" back button but what about Kindle touch ?
filepos is a computer conversion generated number. The anchor number can be ANY unique string value that does not start with a digit.
"filename1.html#washere"

"filename1.html#tohere"

While relative anchors are legal, Sigil can not cope if yo split the file and you end up with orphan references. I suggest you always include the Full filename path in a reference, just to be solid
