Description Murray McAllister 2010-05-24 21:26:42 EDT
Description of problem:
When you give a formalpara an ID, and attempt to link to that part of the document, the link goes to the top of the page that contains the formalpara, rather than to the formalpara itself. This causes issues if you have a page full of formalpara, and want to link to a specific one/part of the document.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
* publican-1.6.3-0.el5
* Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.5 (Tikanga)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a document with a list of formalpara on a single page.
2. attempt to link to one with xref linkend.
Actual results:
If on the same page as the formalpara when you click the link, nothing happens. If on a different page or section, the link takes you to the top of the page containing the formalpara you are trying to get to.

Expected results:
If possible, the link takes you to the formalpara.
