With the new section code, you should be able to have
a redirect to a specific section. That way, you can
have a long page on a single subject, but not
necessarily have to have an entire duplicate page for a
single aspect of that subject.

As an example, [[highest averages method]], [[d'Hondt
method]], and [[Sainte-Lague method]] all must share a
similar explanation as to how "highest averages
method"s work. Sainte-Lague method and d'Hondt
method are pretty much worthless without this
explanation. However, they both have some specialized
information in their own right. I would like to make
"d'Hondt" and "Sainte-Lague" method subsections on
highest averages method, then make d'Hondt something
like #REDIRECT [[highest averages method#d'Hondt
method]]. This would redirect anybody who clicked on
a [[d'Hondt method]] link to the "d'Hondt" section of
[[Highest averages method]].

    This is not intended to work; moving to feature requests.

    Sorry about that. I thought bugs/features were on the same
    system (silly me, I've even submitted a feature request
    before). Anyway, I think this could be done via javascript.
    For example, if you do <body
    onload="location.replace('#section_name')">, my browser
    re-requests the page with the #section_name in it. (This is,
    of course, unacceptable because it would add another page
    request.) I think
    there's probably a way to do this without re-requesting the
    page.
