On some websites, you can easily link to a section of the page that starts with some heading. For example, to link to the section "Site creation process" of the Wikipedia article "Stack Exchange", you can use a link like: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stack_Exchange#Site_creation_process.
On other pages, this is not possible, because the HTML elements that represent headings of the article don't have the
id attribute. For example, there is no way to link to the section "Replaced by computers" of the BBC article "The end of middle management?" No link like http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20150624-the-end-of-middle-management#replaced-by-computers or anything similar will do the right thing and jump to the correct heading.
But I believe a web app might be able to fix this. I imagine having URL like http://thewebapp.com/section_link?url=http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20150624-the-end-of-middle-management§ion=Replaced_by_computers (or http://thewebapp.com/short_link/abcdef) which would somehow link to the section of the specified web page.
Does such a web application exist?
I'm looking for a web application, because I want to send the link to others and have it just work. So a Greasemonkey user script, or a browser extension wouldn't work for me.
