Test Link to the bookmarks & pages in PDFs on the Web

About: google docs

I am now testing a link into the Middle of the Weather Underground communist manifesto called Prairie Fire as written by Bernadine Dorn, Billy Ayers, Jeff Jones & Celia Sojurn. This link (by my preset bookmark) should go to what they make as distinctions about The Black Nation (somewhere around pdf page 128). Note that this does not work in PDFs uploaded to Google Docs.
Note this is good for capturing sentences in documents in their original context like bills that are passed by Congress without indexes etc.
Note that as far as I can recall this solution appeared in a dream this morning for the problem of linking to stuff in RS lectures on the eLib for research on threefoldness.

Here is an attempt to select some interesting paragraphs from the  RS eLib of a lecture imported into a PDF.  I will probably not do this often as it seems like too much work. The following are from bookmarks in the same PDF

What I am looking for is something like govtrack.us uses in their own digest of bills.  Here is an example of the latest giveaway of 26 billion$$ buried in an untitled bill section.  The bill is humorously described in this blog

I contacted the purveyor of govtrack.com who told me that he does all that stuff manually (or his helpers) & he doesn't know of any software that will do it.  I hope that by HTML9.1 we can just jump to a place in the web page with a specific address.  Like "at uri http:\mydomain.commydoc gress 100 memvance say .... etc

BTW, this cartoon illustrates the giveaway link in the middle of the comment above!

You can jump to anywhere in a HTML document where the author put an anchor.    We do this all  the time, see this document at the w3c.   Note the # marks in some of your links above, those are supposed to be anchors inside the document.  The problem is  this works in the browsers with HTML documents but not PDF documents. 
I knew this already!  The problem is with web pages that have no anchors. The # anchors I put in the pdf worked for me, don't they for you?  I had to first import the web page into Acrobat, then make bookmarks & destinations & highlight the text in the PDF document to make it work. It is nice to bring the whole context instead of quoting like we do here at fastblogit.  Ultimately, I will probably be publishing using theBrain which will relate a lot of things which may be complex.  The fun stuff will begin when I change to subjects like threefolding & politics. I think I can do a bit of mentography with theBrain since I can label the lines & tag the nodes & color nodes as different types.
