Anchor name links don't work locally

    I've got pages with anchor tags to jump down the page (e.g., <A
    href="#GetHere"> jumps to <A NAME="GetHere">). Worked fine through IE6.

    With IE7, they still work online, but when viewing the page locally (ie, by
    opening the HTML file on my computer), I get the browser's 404 screen instead
    (which, BTW, no longer says "Error 404", just "Internet Explorer cannot
    display the webpage").

    What gives? This scared the hell out of me till I tested a live page. Now
    it's just e-x-c-r-u-c-i-a-t-i-n-g-l-y annoying.
