Links to nodes in HTML output currently always have a filename and a 
fragment identifier, as follows:


"Lisp-Data-Types" is repeated.

I wonder if it would be possible not to output the "#Lisp-Data-Types" 
part of it.

This would make the HTML output simpler. It would also mean that the 
position of the page when it was loaded didn't depend on the length of 
the node: a link to a long node doesn't go exactly to the top of the 
page, but a link to a node which fits in a single screenful does.  
The latter is scrolled slightly.

This will become more of an annoyance when there is keyboard 
navigation; for example, continually pressing "n" to go to the next node 
will cause the page to wobble up and down according to the length of the 

It wouldn't be completely trivial to make this change, as it should only 
happen if the output is split by node.  There is also a case, I seem to 
remember, where more than one node can be output in the same file if the 
system has a case-insensitive file system.
