Well all browsers handle relative urls dependent of the base tag (as 
they should imho), including the anchor links which are relative to the 
current base.

Really the problem is that the browser default document for a folderish 
object has _two_ urls from the browser perspective. One through the 
folders default view and one for the object itself. This is the reason 
we had to find a way to generate the anchor link exactly like the user 
entered the url into his browser.

What is needed to solve this one and forever is a solution to have 
_only_ one single url no matter if the user views a document through the 
browser default delegation or directly. Plones base tag always is the 
url of the real document (no matter of browser default delegation).
